Climb out of the summer slump, eat lunch at Osage City library

The United Way of the Flint Hills is in the third year of its Summer Climbin’ program that helps combat summer learning loss. Studies have shown that children can lose two months of math and reading skills, and gain weight three times faster during the summer, highlighting the importance of keeping children active and engaged in the summer.

Summer Climbin’ will visit the Osage City Public Library summer meal site 12-12:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 12, to engage kids in literacy, science and personal health. As a summer meal site, children younger than 18 can eat for free at the library.

Summer Climbin’ will also visit summer meal sites in Emporia, Council Grove, White City and Lebo.

Here is the July Summer Climbin’ schedule:

  • Wednesday, July 6: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Riverside Elementary School, Emporia
  • Friday, July 8: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., William Allen White Elementary School, Emporia
