Senator Blunt Visits North Missouri Center For Youth And Families

Senator Roy Blunt was in Chillicothe Tuesday for a stop at the North Missouri Center for Youth and Families.  He spoke with the director Maizey Knifong about the program and toured the facility.  Blunt says the center receives some funding through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program.

Blunt says the programs also help to ensure the participating students receive an after-school snack and in the summer program they have a couple of meals during the day.  The food for the meals is provided by the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Blunt wrapped up his time at the center reading to some of the children.
