Village of Hope extends breakfast program in Lincoln

22 April 2020

During the summer months, VOH typically ensures kids continue to receive healthy snacks, which they get through school snack programs during the academic year, while at home for the break. The Lincoln food bank implemented an emergency version of the snack program when COVID-19 hit.

“During the summer months we didn’t want the kids to fall through the cracks,” said VOH ex ecutive director Cheryl Keddy Scott.

But with the effects of the COVID-19 shutdown, she said demand is up, with family registration increasing by 40 per cent.
