May 23, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Tammy Dodderidge, communications manager, (913) 279-2225

Serving the nutritional needs of children in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools is the goal of the Nutritional Services Department. And summer is no exception. Once again this summer, the department is offering free meals to eligible youth as part of its Summer Food Service Program. (SFSP).

The goal of the program is to make food available to children in the community during a time when many of them may not have access to healthy meals. Offerings include breakfast, lunch and snacks for children ages 1-18. The meals are funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as part of its Summer Food Service Program initiative.

Meals will be available in many areas throughout the Wyandotte County area, during the months of June and July, and August at some sites. Community members, whether enrolled in the district or not, can take advantage of these meals at a site near them.

The purpose of the Summer Food Service Program is to battle food insecurity in the community and state.

All questions related to the Summer Food Service Program can be directed to the Nutritional Services main phone number, (913) 627-3910.
