Here are the topics that I mentioned on the air today. You can watch the video here.
— Art & Maker class by Clever Octopus at Salt Lake City libraries
— Microsoft YouthSpark camps
— Summer meals for children
I also wanted to add a note about the last topic which came up during the conversation. Lori Pritchard told me after the segment that in 2010 she did an investigative report on people abusing the free summer meals program. Apparently people who are not relying on these programs to eat are taking the meals and not leaving any for others who really need it. Please don’t abuse this program which is necessary for some children to get a meal in the summer while school is out.
Here is a link to Lori’s investigative report.
