This is the kind of thing that gives me hope in humanity. When people are in need we should rally around them. Today you may be helping someone and tomorrow someone may be returning the favor. Whatever we want more of in life is what we must give more of. Many children depend on school for breakfast and lunch on a daily basis and with schools closing those kids are likely to go hungry. How do you feed them without congregating was my question?. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County have a solution... Grab and Go meals including breakfast and lunch for all kids not just members. See the official press release below including locations.
