County seeks agencies to host summer food sites

(COURTESY OF USDA)

Volusia County’s Human Services Office is seeking agencies to participate in the Summer Food Service Program, which will run for 10 weeks from June 1 through Aug. 14.

The federally funded program provides meals and snacks to all children ages 18 and younger in geographical areas where at least 50 percent of the children are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.

It was created to ensure that children in low-income areas can receive nutritious meals during summer vacation.

Approved sites will receive meals to serve to participating children.

Schools, public agencies and private nonprofit organizations must apply by March 13. Applications may be obtained by calling 386-736-5956, ext. 12984.

Any person who believes he or she has been discriminated against in any USDA-related activity should call 800-795-3272 or 202-720-6382 (TTY) or write to USDA, Director of the Office of Civil Rights, 1400 Independence Ave. SW, Washington, D.C. 20250-9410. S
