Delavan-Darien offering free summer feeding program for kids

UPDATE: Date of Summer Feeding Program’s last day is now July 15 for ALL SCHOOLS

Summer Lunch programStressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Delavan Darien School district announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under who live within the district boundaries. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.

The following locations will be serving the free meals this summer:

  • Phoenix Middle School, weekdays, June 20- *NEW END DATE* July 15, 2016  July 29, 2016 – breakfast from 7:30-8 a.m.; lunch from 11 a.m. until noon.
  • Turtle Creek Elementary, weekdays, June 20- July 15, 2016 – breakfast from 7:30-8 a.m., lunch from 11 a.m. until noon.

The only weekday that the sites will be closed is July 4.

  • Meals will also be provided at Aram Public Library in Delavan on Tuesdays: June 14, June 21, June 28, July 5, July 12, July 19 from noon to 1 p.m.

Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.

“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Tina Hudy, Delavan-Darien Child Nutrition Director. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
