Displayed from: May 15, 2006 , until: Aug 04, 2006

Summer vacation is just about here, but the end of the school year doesn't mean students have to skip a meal - especially when it is yummy, nutritious and free! Fort Wayne Community Schools is once again offering free summer meals during the week to children ages 1 to 18. There is no restriction and parents do not have to sign up. Children can visit any of the sites to receive a meal. Breakfast is served at some locations, as well as the lunch meal. The Summer Food Service Program for Children (SFSPC) 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 such as FWCS that prepare and serve meals to eligible children during the summer and school vacation periods. Meals are served five days each week. No weekend meals are served and no meals will be available July 3 or 4. The meals will be provided without regard to race, color, national origin, gender or handicap. Questions on program format should be directed to Lynne Peterman, supervisor, Food Service Center at 467- 2500.
