newsSummer Food Service Program


Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?  There is this summer! During the school year, kids get nutritious meals at school.  But kids are just as busy, and just as hungry, during the summer break.  Books and teachers may be replaced by playgrounds and games, but kids’ stomachs don’t take a vacation!  The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) helps kids get the vital nutrition they need when school is out.  This summer, a nutritious breakfast and lunch will be served to kids free!  Lunch is open to all the children, up to age 18, in our area.
