Great Northern Services (GNS) sponsors a USDA Summer Food Service Program. Bag lunches are distributed Monday through Friday from June to August. Meals are provided to all children ages 18 and under without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there is no discrimination in the course of the meal service. In 2018 over 7,200 lunches were served.
