Dinners for Kids Program Fills Bodies and Minds

According to the Luzerne County Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO), there are more than 10,500 children in Luzerne County who are food insecure. The Dinners for Kids Program began with a group of volunteers and resources from Dave Tevet, the former owner of Ollie’s Restaurant. Now the program is providing nutritious meals to those children most in need.

It’s a simple process: A list of eligible children is provided by¬†Children and Youth as well as school officials; the meals are prepared at Ollie’s Restaurant staff, packaged and delivered by volunteers. To continue this simple, yet successful formula, we need volunteers and donations.¬† You can help…Fight childhood hunger with healthy meals today!
