Summer lunch program helps Routt County kids

Lift-Up of Routt County has launched a summer lunch program for school-age children this year. We provide bags donated by Ace Hardware and Walmart that contain enough food for five lunches each week to qualified children. The program runs through Aug. 17 and currently is serving 39 children in Steamboat, 10 in Hayden and 16 in South Routt.

School-age children can qualify for Lift-Up of Routt County’s free summer lunch program if they are enrolled in their school district’s free and reduced-cost lunch program, if their family receives food stamps, or if their family income falls below 185 percent of the annual poverty guidelines. To apply for the program, call 970-870-0727 or stop by Lift-Up at 2125 Curve Court in Steamboat.
