MEAL MONKEY

NEW CASTLE | SILT | RIFLE    

The Meal Monkey lunch program was created when the Garfield County RE2 School District went to a 4-day school week resulting in no school on Fridays. Many students rely on school provided meals, consequently with no school on Fridays, these children have limited access to food over the three non-school days. LIFT-UP, in partnership with the RE2 School District, Food Bank of the Rockies and the River Center provide meals on Fridays throughout the year at no charge to children (18 & under) in key locations in Rifle, Silt and Newcastle. During a regular school year, we can reach many of these children with programs like free breakfast, lunch and afterschool meals.
