Summer Meals Program
Children need healthy food all year long, which is why Metro Schools is sponsoring a summer meals program. During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch programs. When school lets out, many of these children are at risk of hunger. Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process.
Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set a cycle for poor performance once schools begin again, and may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The Summer Meals Program is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children get the nutritious meals they need.
Summer meals are available at no cost to children 18 and under. The meals will be available at the following locations and times:
Whitsitt Elementary School - June 4 to July 13
