About

As children across our service area begin the “summer” portion of their time out of school, many will face hunger as the school meal programs end.

Hunger does not discriminate, and in the United States the face of hunger is surprising.  Many working families are forced to make decisions regarding the purchase of food, or paying for other necessities such as rent, utilities and medical care.

The USDA’s Summer Food Service program will help by providing meals during June, 2020.  Through the SFSP, summer programs can provide meals or snacks to children and teenagers, 18 years and younger.  Meals are served from central sites in low-income areas.

Bundles of meals and milk will be distributed on Mondays each week during the month of June on a “Grab & Go” model.  The child must be present to receive a food bundle.
