The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dubuque participates in the USDA’s free at risk meal program. Last year we provided breakfast, lunch, supper, and snacks to over 32000 children thanks to support from the United Way.
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, supper and snacks to children in the community during the summer vacation period. This program is administered by the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dubuque and serves on weekdays at the Boys & Girls Club facility 1299 Locust, and at over 15 locations throughout the city during the summer. This ia a free program at the Leisure Services playground sites and Terrace Heights Community Center . The Leisure Services Department provides programming at all city sites.
We also serve students from St. Marks and the Multiculutural Center who visit our open site almost daily for breakfast or lunch during the summer.
Starting Ocotber 1, 2018 we opened a supper site which serves meals and provides programming at Terrace Heights throughout the school year from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily with supper served from 4:30-5:00 weekdays.
High School students from Hempstead assist us with activities and meal time supervision.
Thank to everyone that helps make this program a huge success and if you want your organization to participate contact the Club for more information.
