How might we make summer meals more accessible in all neighborhoods?

In summer 2017, Prairie Family Center teamed up with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign to try out a brand new approach. Knowing distance was a barrier, they set out to open new sites closer to where kids live and play. While community is important in Burlington, there are not many places like parks or picnic shelters for residents to convene. For the new sites to be truly accessible, Prairie Family Center had to get creative.
