Oceanside, CA (November13, 2020) - The Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) has received a $10,000 grant from the Rest Haven Children’s Health Fund for our Food and Snack Program. As school closures continue, this much needed program provides nutritious lunches and snacks to youth attending BGCO’s Back2School Program.
BGCO Culinary Arts Specialists create diverse, exciting menus, using fresh, nutritious ingredients specifically selected to ensure that youth receive the daily nutrition requirements. The meals are artfully presented, packed full of fruits and vegetables and so tasty that the children don’t even realize they're eating healthy.
“We are incredibly grateful for the Rest Haven Children’s Health Fund’s support. It is extremely important that we continue to provide proper nutrition for youth during the pandemic. We know that it is difficult for a child to focus on learning when they are experiencing the painful effects of chronic hunger. This grant helps ensure that youth receive well balanced meals, so they are able to focus on their virtual learning,” said Jodi Diamond, CEO.
