While feeding children is the top priority of the Summer Meal Program, programming and activities is what keeps children coming back.  This takes volunteers–and lots of them–especially in June, July, and August.   Volunteers can help with basics like transporting food,  meal service at a site–they also plan and do educational or recreational activities with the children. Visit www.cafebozeman.org for more details.


Tell others how the Summer Meal Program helps feed children and discuss how they or their organization can help.  The more people who know, the more likely they are to take action to help end hunger or know how to help their own children.  Please give the Community Cafe call if you have any questions. 406-587-4225
