The Summer Food Service Program @ Marquette Pool

Posted by Anne McCullough on June 18, 2015 | Leave a Comment

Lewis Reed, Alderwoman Spencer and the St. Louis Dream Center have ensured that hundreds of young people visiting Marquette Pool this summer won’t go hungry! Food insecurity is a major issue in St. Louis, especially when school is out of session. This program starts Monday and then every weekday after from 1:30-2:20 adjacent to Marquette Pool (4025 Minnesota).

More information:

The Summer Food Service Program was created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacation, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs.
