Program from June 12 to Aug. 10 will provide free meals for all youth through age 18

    Crookston Public Schools will once again be providing free meals for all kids ages 0-18 for the third summer in a row.

    Meals will be available at Highland Park Complex under the Lion's Shelter every Monday through Thursday starting June 12. The program will be closed for the week of the 4th of July (July 3-6) and resume on July 10. The last day of the program will be August 10. Meals will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (With some activities at Highland Park ending at 12:30 p.m., meals will be available to those coming directly from those activities.) Free meals will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone 19 years of age or older can purchase a meal for $4 each.

    Tri-Valley Opportunity Council will be providing free transportation throughout the community so kids from surrounding neighborhoods can easily access the Eat United Program. (See a bus route and schedule on page 2.)

    This program is available to all kids up to the age of 18. There are no requirements or applications needed to participate in this program.

    This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United Way of Crookston.
