Summer Meal Program

Información en español


Summer meals will return in July 2022 – BUT with changes!

Why the Changes?

Throughout the pandemic, The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the government agency that administers our summer meal program, waived many of the program requirements, offering flexibilities to meal service operations in an effort to serve participants safely and minimize exposure to COVID-19. Several of the current waivers offering flexibilities are set to expire in the near future. Due to the expiration of these waivers, participants can expect to experience some changes from last summer’s meal service.

  • Students/participants must be present to receive a meal (e.g. a parent or neighbor cannot pickup food for a child)
  • Participant must remain onsite when consuming their meal (food items may not be allowed offsite)
  • Multiple meals will not be served at one meal service

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Meals are available for Persons 18 years or younger & Persons 19 years or older with a physical or mental disability as defined by the state AND who participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program
