    There are many more sites, especially the further south you go. There are a lot in White Center as well (it’s a different program though). The meals are pretty good. I mean they are kids meals, of course, but there are whole grains, lean proteins, fresh fruits and vegetables and milk. And the people who run the sites are extremely nice and provide fun activities for kids too.

Sorry, comment time is over.
