Summer food program kicked off with grab-and-go meals


Volusia County’s summer food service program is underway. The county’s Human Services Office is sponsoring a Summer Food Program through Aug. 14 to provide free breakfast and lunch meals for children ages 18 and under. The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides nutritionally balanced meals during summer break when schools are closed.

Due to coronavirus concerns, grab-and-go meals will be available until May 29. Parents are asked to pick up meals in the sites’ parking lots, where volunteers will give them breakfast and lunch for each child in the car. Meals will not be provided for children who are not in the car.

The following sites will offer grab-and-go meals through May 29. The sites will be closed May 25 for Memorial Day.
