Summer Meal Program kicks off May 28th

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children eating healthy while school is out. Beginning May 28 the 2018 Summer Food Service Program will kick off with four Scottsbluff locations serving meals. From May 28 to June 27, meals will be served Monday through Friday from 10:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.  Nutritious meals will be provided to all children 18 years of age and younger free of charge. Adults may eat for $3.85.  Snacks are provided from 9:00-9:30 a.m. at these locations for all children 18 years of age or younger.  Adults may purchase a snack for $3.55. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, gender or disability.

In addition, this year there will be two mobile routes stationed at a variety of locations across Scottsbluff.  This will allow all children in Scottsbluff to receive meals in their elementary attendance area.  The schedule for all locations as well as the mobile units is available below.

Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Scottsbluff Public Schools to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. For more information about the national Summer Food Service Program, visit http://www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/summer.
