PROGRAM TO FEED
Seventy high school students participating in Los Angeles Mission College's Upward Bound program this summer will not only receive a college-level education, but they'll be nutritionally fed in the process.
The students will receive two to three meals daily through the federal Department of Education's Summer Food Service Program, while taking part in the academic enrichment program from July 1 through August 2.
Mission College's Upward Bound
program provides 70 low-income students from Kennedy, San Fernando and
Sylmar high schools with an opportunity to be the first in their families
to attend college. During the school year, students attend a series of
academic workshops, visit colleges and take part in cultural activities.
The summer portion of the program provides students with a real life college
experience. Participating students take college-style courses and live
on a college campus.
