The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dubuque participates in the USDA’s free at risk meal programs. Last year we provided breakfast, lunch, supper, and snacks to over 27,000 children.
In addition to the school year program, we sponsor a Summer Food Service Program also funded by the USDA and the United Way to provide free breakfast, lunch, and snacks to children in the community during the summer vacation period. The program is administered by the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dubuque and on weekdays at the Boys & Girls Club facility, 1299 Locust, Comiskey playground, Lincoln playground, Flora park, Terrace Heights Community Center and at Audubon playground for breakfast and lunch. This free program at the Leisure Services playground sites is sponsored in cooperation with the City of Dubuque which provides funding for delivery and supervision at these locations.
This year we added afternoon snacks at Jefferson Park, Burden Park, Jackon Park, Marshall School, and Prescott School.
We also serve students from St. Marks and the Multiculutural Center who visit our open site almost daily for breakfast and lunch during the summer.
