Meal program at Boys & Girls Club provides summer nutrition for local youths

Kim Maneotis said summer is a stressful time for parents in Craig. “During the summer months when kids are home for three meals a day, that puts quite a strain on families,” said Maneotis, unit director for the Boys & Girls Club of Craig, 1324 E. U.S. Highway 40. To help relieve that strain, the Boys & Girls Club has partnered with the Moffat County School District to offer a midday meal and afternoon snack Monday through Friday to any interested child in Moffat County younger than 18 years old. Lunch prepared by MCSD food service employees is served at 11:20 a.m. and the afternoon snack is distributed at 3:30 p.m.
