I have been impressed as I have followed Provo School District’s ITSMeals at how well-rounded and kid-friendly their meals have been this past school year. They make uninteresting food interesting and have had quite a few creative displays!

To continue with their good nutrition, the Provo City School District Summer Child Nutrition Program begins June 3rd.

This is a great opportunity for children to enjoy nutritious meals during the summer. Those who don’t have enough to eat at home won’t be going hungry when school gets out.

“Our summer meal program is a building block in the community for healthy, happy children who are ready to learn.” -Keith Rittel
