SUMMER BREAK SPOTS OFFER
FREE FOOD TO HUNGRY STUDENTS
June 09, 2015
MARION COUNTY

“Learning and good nutrition do not end when school lets out.” With this in mind, Marion County Public Schools reminds the community it offers nutritious meals so students are fueled to learn and grow in its summer meal program.

The Summer Food Service Program provides free, nutritionally-balanced meals to any student who wants to eat. Last year in Marion County, the program served nearly 133,600 meals – 37,554 breakfasts, 69,854 lunches, 24,111 afternoon snacks and 2,080 supper meals – a 24 percent increase over summer 2013. The district anticipates up to 76,000 additional meals this summer so 10 additional sites are added to the lineup.

This year, from June 8 – July 30, 50 locations will provide meals on various schedules from 23 central school kitchens and 27 satellite locations (italicized) throughout Marion County. Click here for a complete list of locations.
