FREE SUMMER MEALS ARE HERE!

SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Starting June 28, breakfast and lunch will be served Monday through Thursday for students enrolled in a summer school program. The meals will be served to them at the location they are attending summer school. To-go breakfast and lunch meals will be available for the students to take home with them on Thursdays for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer school program.  

SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAMS OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY

Starting June 30, to-go breakfast and lunch will be distributed for free at the schools listed below every Wednesday from 10am-1pm for all 7 days of the week to any child 18 years old and younger in the community. People over the age of 18 who are enrolled in a program for people with disabilities can also pick up meals. A national waiver allows an adult such as a parent or guardian to pick up meals for the student so the child does not have to be present at the time of pickup. The final day to pick up to-go meals at a school open to the community is Wednesday July 28. A limited number of schools will also serve meals on August 4 and 11 (see below for a list of school serving meals until July 28 and for a list for schools serving meals on August 4 and 11).
