Helping keep our children healthy over the summer

The Medford Housing Authority has recently been awarded a $4,000 Summer Food Service Program Incentive Grant from Project Bread- the Walk for Hunger.  This grant will help to raise the number of children who will be able to receive a healthy, federally reimbursed, free meal throughout the summer when school is completed for the summer.  The grant represents Project Breads efforts to increase federal money into various communities throughout Massachusetts by increasing participation in federally reimbursed food programs.  This grant is made much more beneficial to families in Medford during these tough economic times where every program and measure of help can drastically shape a family’s condition for the better.  The Medford Community will be able to use this grant to ensure that its children will return to school in the fall energized and ready to learn.  I have been a strong supporter of programs to help the children living in my district.
