Jacksonville City Schools Summer Feeding Program

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

 

While many students look forward to the end of the school year and summer enrichment opportunities, for far too many students, summer means hunger. Jacksonville City Schools Summer Feeding Program and Feeding Programs throughout Calhoun County have opened their doors to provide children with healthy meals. This summer, 10 separate summer feeding programs throughout Calhoun County plan to serve free meals to children 18 and under. Jacksonville City Schools Child Nutrition Director Stephanie Gossett says their Summer Feeding Program ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Jacksonville is serving snacks and a lunch to children 18 and younger at three approved sites. The meals will be served Monday through Thursday through July 21st. The meals are free and are USDA approved.
