During the summer months, the Boys & Girls Club in Syracuse serves hundreds of free meals to kids who lose access to free and reduced meals at school. Rep. John Katko (R-Camillus) is pushing legislation to expand summer food service programs.
Seven-year-old Memah plays with her friends at the Boys & Girls Club in Syracuse.
“You learn a lot, there’s a lot of food and you can play a lot,” Memah said.
She eats twice a day at the Boy & Girls Club. She likes pancakes for breakfast and hamburgers for lunch. Katko helped serve lunch to the kids.
