ST. JOSEPH — The Church of St. Joseph is hosting an informational meeting about Joe Town Summer Lunch and Learn program tonight.

The program helps kids and teens ages 18 and younger have access to a free lunch from mid June through mid August.

Molly Weyrens is a core group member for the Central Minnesota Catholic Worker. She says the idea for the summer lunch program came from the Joe Town Community Table.

Weyrens says there have been 80 to 100 people attending the community meal each month. At Kennedy School 30 percent of students have free or reduced lunch.

The summer program will help those kids have access to a meal about four days a week during the summer. The meeting is open to parents interested in enrolling their child into the program or people interested in volunteering.

The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. in the Heritage Hall.
