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.

Marquette Pool to REOPEN

Posted by Anne McCullough on May 21, 2015 | Leave a Comment

 

The Marquette Pool will REOPEN in June!!! Marquette Pool is the only publicly open pool on the south side and it has been closed for over a year. This pool is a vital part of summer activities for our kids and a tremendous resource for our families.

Yesterday the work Alderman Antonio French has done to rejuvenate O’Fallon Park was recognized by our Chief of Police for directly reducing crime in the community. An investment in healthy activities for kids and families is an investment in our city’s future.
