Super Supper

Most after-school programs serve a snack to keep children focused throughout the afternoon. But many children eat lunch hours before the after-school program, sometimes as early as 10:30 in the morning, and they need more than just a snack to make it through the afternoon. The Supper Program provides a healthy meal after school hours for eligible students.
