Summer is Here and Kids are Hungry

Are your kids on summer break? Are you a grandparent watching the grandkids over the summer? If you're in need, there's free food available, but only while supplies last.

Who's Eligible?

Anyone caring for kids this summer in Delta, Montrose, and Mesa Counties.

Here's What You'll Find in the Summer Break Box

Put simply, the box includes foods that kids love and which can be easily prepared by young people. For example:

  • macaroni and cheese
  • breakfast bars
  • string cheese
  • ravioli

Personally, I'm 51 and perfectly capable of screwing up macaroni and cheese. Kids, on the other hand, seem to be able to prepare it without difficulty.

How to Apply

The Salvation Army has a form to fill out. Looking at the form it seems pretty cut and dry. The questions don't appear to be particularly tricky.

How You'll Know if Your Application Was Received

Once you click the SUBMIT button, your registration has been received. Please only fill out the form once. Applicants will receive only one box of food.

When to Pick Up

When you'll receive the Summer Break Box depends on which county you live in. The Salvation Army will contact you via email with pick-up dates and times.

The Salvation Army asks that you "spread the word." If you know someone caring for children this summer, let them know about this awesome opportunity.
