Life360 Community Services Continues Free Summer Meals in Southeast Kansas Towns
To help feed low-income areas of Southeastern Kansas, Life360 Community Services is returning its summer feeding program (SFSP) to the towns of Oswego, Parsons, and Baxter Springs. This program is available for children ages 18 and under.
Kansas has decided to allow multi-day non-congregate service that allows parent pickup. In an agreement with the Kansas Department of Education, the state agency is supporting Life360 Community Services’ expansion of its operations to feed at-risk children in Southeast Kansas.
“Summertime poses a real risk for hungry kids. Schools sometimes provide the only nutritional meals a child gets,” said Bill Hennessy, Executive of Operations of Life360 Community Services. “Our summer feeding program helps alleviate that hunger and provides the energy active kids need during their most active days.”
In 2020, Life360 Community Services served three million meals during the first 100 days of the pandemic. This April, Life360 Community Services served its 12 millionth meal. For the last three summers, Life360 Community Services served multi-day meals from different locations with parents easily picking them up at several drive-through locations.
