WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — F&I product provider GWC Warranty has partnered with the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) to sponsor a Food 4 Kids van.
CEO’s Food 4 Kids Summer Program makes nutritious food more available to at-risk children by delivering healthy meals and snacks to parks, playgrounds, libraries and other community sites throughout the summer months when at-risk children are not receiving meals at school. The van sponsored by GWC Warranty makes deliveries five days a week throughout Pennsylvania’s Luzerne and Lackawanna counties.
The Food 4 Kids summer program served more than 64,000 meals in 2016 to children at 82 community sites throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. Because schools often provide the only opportunities for income-limited children to receive nutritious food, Food 4 Kids helps ensure access to quality meals and snacks during the summer months.
