Free summer meal program starts June 18
Hunger doesn’t stop during summer vacation. But thanks to the Summer Meal Program, students who rely on school meals can continue receiving nutritious breakfasts and lunches through the summer.
The Summer Meal Program is a federally funded child nutrition program created to ensure that children in low-income areas can continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations. The meals are available to all children 18 years and younger. There is no registration or fee. The program starts June 18 and runs through Aug. 17. Children may come all or any days they wish.
Parents are encouraged to come with their children, but are asked to bring their own meal.
