SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JUN 13, 2015

The Sarasota Family YMCA Frank Berlin, Sr. Branch and Evalyn Sadlier Jones Branch will be offering a Summer Food Program that provides nutritious meals and snacks, paired with fun learning activities to keep children healthy, active and well- nourished all summer long. “This may seem hard to believe, but one in five children in the U.S. lives in a household that does not have enough food. It’s important to us at the Sarasota YMCA to join the fight against hunger,” said Tracy Spalsbury, marketing director for the Sarasota YMCA. The Y is dedicated to ensuring that kids in our communities have on-going access to nutrition all year long. When kids eat nutritiously, they’re more likely to reach their full potential. Also, good nutrition is essential for academic success. The branches will be serving breakfast at 8am and lunch at 12pm for all children under 18 beginning Monday, June 8, 2015. The food program is free.
