Just as learning doesn’t end when students go on summer break, neither does the need for good nutrition. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program works with communities to provide free, nutritious meals and snacks when school is out. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says Extension is playing an active role in helping communities across Kansas to participate in this program and increase the number of children receiving summer meals.
Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
