FWCS Offers Summer Meals Throughout Fort Wayne

Record Number: 18710
Displayed from: Jun 05, 2019 , until: Aug 05, 2019

Fort Wayne Community Schools is again sponsoring the Summer Food Service Program for Children (SFSPC) providing free meals to all children ages 18 and younger and to adults who are enrolled in a state-approved educational program for the mentally or physically disabled.

The meal program was created to serve nutritious meals to children when National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program meals are not available. To ensure all children receive proper nutrition throughout the year, SFSPC reimburses organizations that prepare and serve meals to eligible children during the summer.

Meals are served Monday through Friday, unless otherwise noted, at 35 sites, including visits to parks by the FWCS Lunch Bus. Most sites opened Wednesday, June 5, and close Friday, July 26. No meals are served Thursday, July 4.

This year, those interested in finding a nearby site can text “Summer Meals” to 97779 or “Food” or “Comida” to 877877.

Summer Meals will be provided at the following sites:
