Free Summer Meals Program Available at 13 Spring ISD campuses

NBC NEWS

The Charleston County School District will offer free meals at almost 100 sites this summer to help bridge the nutrition gap facing thousands of children when the school year ends.

Starting this week through July 24, the sites offering free meals are Meadows Elementary at 55 S. Brown Ave., and West Vigo Elementary, 501 Olive St., West Terre Haute.

Summer has officially arrived, sometimes leaving children in low-income areas without access to meals they would normally have during the school year.

With school now out for the summer, food has become a major concern for many North Texas families.

School is out for the summer, but an east Austin charter school is still full of kids. Open: Thursday only from 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Students start showing up around 7:30 every morning and leave around 1:30 in the afternoon, getting breakfast and lunch in between classes every day.

- Monroe Park: 11:45 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.

Together DCPS and Chartwells K12 will host more than 80 "Summer BreakSpot" community feeding sites in Jacksonville beginning on June 5.

Summer Meals serves children and teens age 18 and younger.

You can find locations of where these meals will be provided by visiting www.summerfood.org, texting FOODTX to 877-877 or by calling 2-1-1. No financial qualification is required for meals but, children must eat meals on-site.

"We want to reach more children", she said. "Many of the sites will have other activities, games or programs that run in hand with the feeding times". The Daily News will provide updates to locations as they are added or removed.
