KPS Jumpstarts Summer Food Program

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - The Kalispell School District kicked off its summer food program providing breakfast and lunch to hungry children over the summer.

All morning children across the valley ate and danced as they celebrated the summer food program. The summer food program is a program that serves nutritious breakfast and lunch meals to children under 18. Program Coordinator Katie Wheeler said the program allows kids to eat local and freshly grown produce.

"Every meal we have a green and protein fruit vegetable diary, this year we are serving a lot of local foods so the hamburgers that we have today are local meet burgers and the cucumbers and the tomatoes that we have are all locally grown," Wheeler said.

Breakfast will be served at Flathead High School and Woodland Park from 8:30-9:30 Monday-Friday. Lunch is served at Woodland Park from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
