GWC Warranty, a provider of used vehicle service contracts and related finance and insurance products sold through dealers, has partnered with the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) to sponsor a Food 4 Kids van.

CEO’s Food 4 Kids Summer Program makes nutritious food more available to at-risk children by delivering healthy meals and snacks to parks, playgrounds, libraries and other community sites throughout the summer months when at-risk children are not receiving meals at school. The van sponsored by GWC Warranty makes deliveries five days a week throughout Luzerne and Lackawanna counties in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Food 4 Kids summer program served more than 64,000 meals in 2016 to children at 82 community sites throughout the region.

“Because schools often provide the only opportunities for income-limited children to receive nutritious food, Food 4 Kids helps ensure access to quality meals and snacks during the summer months,” GWC Warranty said.
