The Summer meals program is looking for volunteers to help with activities at the New Haven Public School Food Services free summer meal mobile sites. At these sites from Jun 29 until Aug 18 either free meals, lunch or supper, is provided to any child aged eighteen or younger. Over 40% of New Haven's children live in poverty and while school is out these free meals are a way for children to get healthy food.We need volunteers to run fun activities to attract the children to the site(s) so they can get food when the food truck or bus arrives. While the food trucks tend to stay in an area for about 30 mins, programming can be longer. Activities can include music, art, games, reading, etc.
If you are interested in lending your talents, please contact Cathy Davies (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 858 231 0274.
