Happy (almost) summer!

It’s been a busy 2014 and we have been working on a project that I thought might be of interest to you and your community.

As many of you know a variety of school districts will not be having summer school, or some children who can attend summer school, will not attend. For some of those children that means they will go without a healthy meal that is normally provided to them at school. However, there is good news! We have developed a free mobile app called Range. This app locates the time and place where youth can access free summer meals in their community or neighborhood.

The tool can be best used by school staff, organizations, community members and individuals can increase the numbers of youth who benefit from free meals in their community this summer.

If you would like to know more about Range before signing up, feel free to go to The Range Website. There you will find an overview of what the App does, as well as how to download the App on Windows, Android and iPhones. You can also register to receive email updates regarding the App through this site.

This is an open invitation, so please share this information with your colleagues, staff, clients and community members and invite them to join us in the fight to end youth hunger!

Happy Solstice,

Mary Duffy
