The Bread & Broth 4 Kids Summer Program begins June 20, and will continue every Wednesday through Aug. 22 in South Lake Tahoe.
Any child up to the age of 18 can come alone or with a parent or legal guardian to any of the three distribution sites. At St. Theresa’s Church, children can fill up a bag with fresh fruit, cereals, milk, breakfast and nutrition bars, canned meat and more. At the two school sites, prepacked bags will be provided.
Youth are encouraged to bring a backpack or reusable tote bag to carry food home.
Food will only be given to parents who are accompanied by their child(ren).
