LAKE WORTH — People normally associate Happy Meals with McDonald’s. But there are other types.
Take, for instance, the 100 needy children who on Thursday received backpacks full of nutritious food at CROS Ministries Summer Day Camp at Sunlight Community Church on North A Street as part of the Food4OurKids program.
Some of the items in the backpacks included canned tuna, white rice, macaroni and cheese, applesauce and dry pinto beans.
The kids were among the 2,500 children and their families who each weekend benefit from the program, run by the Palm Beach County Food Bank at 30 county day camps operated by various agencies, including CROS Ministries.
Weekends are often a critical time for kids, many of whom who often have nothing to eat when they’re not in school.
