Summer Meal Program
Although school has ended for the summer, District 7 students can continue to receive two meals a day similar to school lunch, except the meals are FREE to all children 18 and under who come to the registered sites. Through the Summer Food Service Program, an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture, students may to receive up to two FREE meals a day at participating schools and other partner sites through a special program started by the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs.
Parents DO NOT need to apply to the program to get a free summer meal for their kids. Simply come by one of the sites. The program is open to all regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability and the food served meets USDA Guidelines.
District 7 anticipates serving more than 6,500 free meals to students this summer at the 26 partner sites. Rene Coosey, District 7′s food service coordinator, said the number of partners the district has is a clear sign that the community cares about its students.
