‘For Kids, By Kids’ program has many benefits

Aug. 4—WILKES-BARRE — On a quiet Wednesday, students participating in the Luzerne/Wyoming Counties System of Care program were busy preparing meals for other students of families in need.

The scene was quiet for sure, but for the families served, the program has been a resounding success.

The program is called “For Kids, By Kids,” and it’s part of the federally funded food program that was an idea developed from youth involved in community service through the Luzerne County Juvenile Wellness Court.
