    I know that my brother got one form the city when he installed his meter but that was a pilot program. I also know that these have been growing in popularity for some time and that even the rebate programs are drying up. It seems the most economical way to get one is build it yourself or you can purchase one from a cost of $20 to $125 for the typical 55 gallon variety. I looked on Craigs list and found these which are pretty reasonable and in that range.https://chicago.craigslist.org/search/grd?query=rain+barrel - actually, I am thinking of getting one myself.

Free breakfast and lunch are available for children under 18 all summer across the state. Children and teens will not have to apply or show any proof of family income in order to receive a meal under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Meals program. They just need to show up.

Parents can search for sites by zip code at www.summerfeedingillinois.org, or by texting “FoodIL” “AlimentosIL” to 877-877 for details about the closest summer meal location.

If you know of anyone that this could help out, please feel free to share it.

Raise Your Hands is hosting a 2015 CPS budget rundown tonight at 6:30pm. Raise Your Hands will show you how to find the proposed budgets for your schools and talk about how you can speak out for your schools at the Wednesday budget meeting. You don't need to attend the meeting tonight to go to the budget hearings on Wednesday.

The CPS budget hearings are this Wednesday night at 6pm at Wright College, Malcolm X, and Kennedy King colleges. (Registration starts at 5pm). Why should you go speak out at this budget hearing? Because CPS is cutting the budgets for many of our public schools that our neighborhood children attend. We can't let them further weaken our public schools without putting up a fight.

Examples of some of the proposed cuts...

Kelvyn Park High School -$1.8 million
Belmont-Cragin Early Childhood -$1.6 million
Steinmetz H.S. -$448,000
Northwest Middle School -$ 313,000
Reinberg -$30,000
Thorp -$ 275,000
Foreman -$728,000
Schurz - $711,000
Department of Academic learning and Support- City wide -$75,000,000
Department of Diverse learners Support and Services -$88,000,000
