Who feeds our children during the summer? The May 29 Rural Minnesota Radio program talks about just this question. The Center is releasing a mini-research piece this week on what children in the free and reduced-price lunch program do for meals during the summer. The infographic shows another example of issues rural and metro counties have in common and the barriers in rural counties that make it difficult to make this program work.
In this second half of Jim’s interview with Dr. Kathleen Annette, they talk about other findings of the Blandin Foundation’s Rural Pulse survey, including rural Minnesotans’ top priorities, optimism in spite of challenges, and the fact metro residents agree that the rural voice is not being heard.
