All students experience learning loss over summer vacation; however low-income students lose more than two months in reading achievement while their middle-class peers maintain or improve reading achievement. Limited access to educational activities over summer break is one cause of the achievement gap. Another is access to nutritional meals.

In a single program we feed the body and the mind. We provide these children a unique opportunity to maintain reading and math skills over the summer along with a reliable healthy meal provided by the Milford Area Humanitarian Coalition and the Hockomock Area YMCA. The lunch will be served from 11:30 am at the Stacy Middle School.
