Blessings for All, Empowered by Faith, Inc. have begun their summer feeding program.
Calbrina Woods said the program will continue until the end of July, and each day, the children in attendance will receive lunch.
They have will have a speaker that will come and speak to the group each Wednesday..
On Friday, Winona firemen will speak to the group about fire safety and as a treat and a way to cool off, treat the kids to fun in the sun, courtesy of the department.
Also, on June 24, Woods said there will be food boxes that will be given out at the National Guard Armory on Industrial Drive in Winona at 11:30 a.m. She said the boxes are first come, first served.
Woods said this year, she’s averaging about 25 kids per day. She said that gas prices have been an issue for parents who might want to bring their children to attend but can’t because they can’t afford to take them. She said she’s hopeful as the events continue, the group will begin to increase.
Woods said, later, she will have a back-to-school event that will conclude the end of the summer feeding program.
