Summer Meal Program Begins

Free breakfast and lunch for kids July 5–August 17

Summer is here and school is out—but some 4J cafeterias are still cooking.

Eugene School District 4J serves about 10,000 meals to students each day when school is in session. Kids’ need for healthy food to grow, learn and thrive doesn’t end when school lets out for the summer. The federal Summer Food Service Program works to help fill that nutritional gap.

Eugene School District 4J will provide meals at five school sites this summer: Chávez, Holt and Howard elementary schools, and Churchill and Sheldon high schools. Free lunch also is available in many parks and community centers throughout Eugene at summer food program sites hosted by Food for Lane County and other organizations.

Children are welcome to eat at any summer meal site; they do not need to be students at that school. There are no application, income or enrollment requirements. All children age 18 and younger can eat free. Parents are invited to eat with their children by bringing their own food or purchasing a meal ($3.50 for breakfast, $4.00 for lunch).

Times and locations for 4J summer meal sites are below. These are the accurate times and locations; some state and national websites have shown incorrect information for 4J summer meal sites.
