Calling all Summer Food Champions!
87% of Weed students are on free or reduced meals during the school year and come summertime, families struggle to meet the added costs of food when the kids are home. The USDA has a well established program that community supporters and GNS are bringing to Weed this summer to offer kids 18 and under a healthy lunch.

Want to become a Summer Food Champion?
The program runs Monday – Friday from June 22 – Aug 17th
(no service the week of Carnevale – July 6 – 10) and we need folks to help for a short time during their day with:
Sack lunch assembly at WES in the mornings
Site volunteers at Bel Air Park during the meal distribution (noon – 1:00 pm)
Activity organizers (arrange for age appropriate demos, story telling etc.)
Transportation of meals from WES to the park and back each day
