Child Hunger is Real

 

2020 was a wild ride for all of us but especially for children.  Child hunger in our area is real.  So many kids depend on those school lunches and breakfast.  The Manchester Boys & Girls Club Union Street Clubhouse will be offering a program to provide meals for kids this summer from June 21 to August 27 according to unionleader.com.

 

What, Where, When

 

You can head over to the Boys & Girls clubhouse at 555 Union Street in Manchester from June 21 to August 27 and grab a feel meal for breakfast and dinner.  Breakfast will be available from 7 am to 8 am and dinner will be ready from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm.  You do not have to be a member of the Boys & Girls Club to participate in the summer meals program.

 

If you have Kids in the Area, Give them a Try

 

My kids participated in the Boys & Girls club when we lived in California for one summer and I believe their program really made a difference in their lives.  It helped bridge that gap kids have in the summer and kept their brains and bodies moving while having fun.  Now, after all the pandemic school closures this last year, that learning gap may be bigger than ever. Now that Moms and Dads are back to work, this may be a great option for you to keep the kids busy for the summer.  If you have any questions you can contact Boys & Girls Club CEO Ken Neil at 603-625-5031, ext. 230 according to unionleader.com.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
