Richland One to Provide Children with Free Summer Meals


Starting Monday, June 8, families will be able to pick up free summer meals for their children at eight Richland One school sites. The 2020 Summer Food Service Program will operate on Mondays only from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the following schools: South Kilbourne Elementary, Caughman Road Elementary, Southeast Middle, Lower Richland High, Carver-Lyon Elementary, Eau Claire High, St. Andrews Middle, and Hyatt Park Elementary schools.


The federally-funded Summer Feeding Program, which offers seven days’ worth of nutritious breakfasts and lunches to any child at no cost to parents, is expected to operate through July 30. Organizations that provide summer camps, day care or other programs for children may be eligible to receive free meals for their participants.  Limited home delivery services will be available during the summer.


Although the online application has closed, families that have not previously signed up may still receive meals.  To pick up meals, children must be present in the vehicles for the first pick-up, unless they or the community organization have been previously verified for the program by the district. No further applications are necessary.
