School Lunch

Summer Food Service:

Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child’s need for good nutrition. Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. The good news is that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is partnering with organizations in our area to provide free meals through the Summer Food Service Program (SFEP). This program provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to eligible families, to help children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school.

For site contact information and times of service, please call 1 (800) 522-5006 or the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3HUNGRY.
