Summer Meals Week
Governor Kate Brown has proclaimed July 15-19, 2019 to be "Summer Meals Week"
in Oregon. What a great way to celebrate all the great things that Summer Food Service Sponsors do to provide nutritious meals to kids during the summer months; helping to turn that "Summer Gap" in learning, into a "Summer Boost". Check out this fun video
that announces the proclamation.
