Bernalillo County’s Summer Lunch Program provides free and nutritious meals to youth


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Bernalillo County’s Office of Health and Social Services is committed to supporting the community, and one of the ways it shows support is with its Summer Lunch Program. It had served thousands of free and nutritious meals for more than 30 years.
