Summer Food Service Program under way

Filed under VOLUSIA

Volusia County’s Human Services Office is sponsoring a Summer Food Service Program for children at 66 sites from June 11 through Aug. 10.

The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides nutritionally balanced meals regardless of race, color, sex, disability or national origin during summer vacation when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.

All children 18 and younger are eligible for meals at no charge, and there will be no discrimination in meal service. The programs are approved only for geographical areas where 50 percent or more of the children qualify for free and reduced-price meals during the school year.

All sites listed under city headings will serve children in the immediate vicinity in addition to those enrolled in their summer programs.

The following sites will participate in the Summer Food Service Program in Daytona Beach. For information on other sites around the county, call 386-254-4648.
