According to “No Kid Hungry,” “Addressing summer hunger can have clear health, education, and economic benefits. In the short term, the program can help mitigate summer weight gain, cognitive decline, and summer learning loss among children.” At New Day, we recognize that parents experience challenges in providing for their children during the summer. When school is out, many of these children can go hungry.
New Day addresses childhood hunger in Kitsap by providing free healthy lunches during school closures for children and teens in low-income areas. These kid-friendly lunches are made with each child’s food allergies and health in mind.
During other school closures, New Day provides weekend lunch packs for low-income children every Friday.
This Program Serves
School Children from ages 5 to 18 years old. Persons over 18 years old who are physically or mentally disabled and participating in a public or nonprofit private school program established for children with these disabilities may also participate in this program.
Each lunch contains Bread, protein, snack, fruit, vegetable, milk, and water.
These lunches are prepared and assembled into lunch bags by our dedicated volunteers. We deliver these lunches to children in Bremerton.
If your children need lunch during the summer months, please call us at (360) 373-0184.
