Summer Meal Program - Summertime brings a break from school... but the need for good nutrition doesn't take a break!

Learning does not end when school lets out. Neither does the need for good nutrition.


Dear Parents & Guardians,

Child Nutrition will be providing FREE breakfast and lunch to students throughout the summer months through USDA's Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be provided to all children, ages 1-18 and individuals with disabilities through age 21, free of charge. There is no additional criteria to participate in the program and pre-registration is not required.

Each pick-up date will include a meal package that consists of one breakfast and lunch per child for each day leading up to the next distribution day. Therefore, each child will receive 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches on Monday pick-ups and 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches on Thursday pick-ups.

Parents/Guardians may pick up the meal packages for their child(ren).



Pick-ups will begin May 26th and go through August 2nd on Monday's and Thursday's.

*Due to Memorial Day & 4th of July Holiday's falling on a Monday, those scheduled Monday pick-ups will be moved to Tuesday, June 1st and Tuesday, July 6th.*

Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. Continuing healthy eating habits is also important during the long hot summer months. Eating nutritious foods helps ensure students retain their hard learned knowledge… and to help them to keep right on learning throughout the summer. For many of these children, summer vacation can bring the temptation of eating empty calorie snacks and foods that are high in sugar, fats and sodium. And for many others, summer exposes students to an increased risk of hunger and developmental decline. Make seasonal fruits and vegetables a high priority for your snacks, meals and anytime.

Summertime is a time to play hard...but it is also a time to remember to eat right. Make sure good nutrition remains a priority all summer long, and students will return to school in the Fall healthy, sharp and ready to learn.
