FREE MEALS FOR CHILDREN AVAILABLE THROUGH SUMMER FOOD PROGRAM
Free meals will be available to all children attending programs this summer at sites across Nebraska.
Meals will be available through the Summer Food Service Program for Children, a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) program. The attached 2019 Summer Food Program Sites list shows the sponsors, dates, and times that meals will be available to all children.
A number of summer camps and programs are also offering free meals to those children who are enrolled. Under the USDA Summer Food Service Program, free meals are available when 50 percent of the children enrolled at the site meet the federal Summer Food Service Program Eligibility Standards for family income listed in the graph immediately below. The second list in this release shows the sites offering summer camps and programs.
A complete list of sites is available in the full News Release.
