MBC MOVES AT SUMMER LUNCH! Join us from 12 -1 PM Wednesday, June 23rd @ Story Mill Park Wednesday, July 14th @ Bozeman Public Library Pick up your free summer lunch and dance with us!

Free Summer Meal Sites With summer vacation in sight, we can all acknowledge that both parents and students have made it through a year like no other—virtual classes, masks, social distancing, school closings and reopenings all took their toll. Summer should be a time for families to relax, play and have some fun. However, for families facing tough economic times, summer is challenging. On average, when school is not in session a family’s food budget increases by roughly $300 per child per month. In addition to the added costs, meeting the whole family’s nutritional needs takes a lot of time and energy. At HRDC we believe all members of the family deserve a break this summer – parents and guardians included. We want food to be one less thing to worry about, so we will be operating free summer meal sites for kids and teens at eight locations around Bozeman all summer long. At lunchtime Monday through Friday, anyone 18 and under will receive a free meal at our sites. No registration or proof of income is necessary, simply show up. Adults accompanying children can also eat a meal for a small donation. Meals are delicious and healthy, following USDA nutritional guidelines and incorporating many local ingredients. Meal site
