Delavan-Darien School District participating in summer food program
DELAVAN Free meals will be available for eligible children at three Delavan school sites this summer through the federally-funded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). The program is designed to provide nutritious meals to children during the summer months when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.
The locations offering the lunches are Delavan-Darien High School, June 18-20, meals served from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.; Phoenix Middle School, June 11-13, and July 9-Aug. 2, meals served from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.; and Turtle Creek Elementary School, July 9-Aug. 2, meals served from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
Free meals will be available to eligible children 18 and under. Persons over 18 with mental or physical disabilities who also participate in public or private school programs during the year may receive free meals as well.
The SFSP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Tina Hudy, child Nutrition Director of Delavan-Darien School District. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
