Please share the attached information with parents and school staff immediately, so they are aware of the Summer Meal Program and where they can locate free meals for children this summer. High inflation is creating a hardship on many families and this information can aid those families when children are home during the summer and increasing grocery bills. The Summer Meals Program is an opportunity for some assistance with off-setting those costs.
Meals will be served in the CAFETERIA at the school and in a designated space inside the participating recreation centers. Meals should be eaten on-site. The USDA waiver that allowed meals to be taken 'to go' ends on the last day of school, so 'to go' meals are no longer allowed.
Any summer camps or programs for students taking place at your schools between June 6 and July 29th are eligible to receive meals. If your school is not a meal site, the meals can be picked up at the closest site by registering the camp or program to receive bulk meals. Registration form for summer camps to receive meals
Updates related to the Summer Meals Program will be available on the CNS Department Web page.
