Hunger never takes a vacation break, even though students in the Colonial School District do, but children won’t go without thanks to the federally funded Summer Food Service Program operated locally by the district’s Nutrition Services Division.

“We understand there is a need in our community and look forward to providing nutritious meals to families who struggle to make ends meet over the summer,” said Nutrition Services Supervisor Paula Angelucci.

Angelucci says the program is extended this year to include seven new sites in the district so more children will have access to healthy meals.  Colonial’s Care-A-Vans will deliver meals to the following sites:

Lunches must be eaten on location.

Meals are provided free to all children under the age of 18 Monday through Thursday, a minimal fee is charged to adults at the school sites.

“This year we (Nutrition Services Department) will have a heavy focus on incorporating local foods into our meals because we know that local foods tend to be more flavorful and have higher nutritional value than those coming from a farther distance.  We feel that children will be more inclined to try new foods, get the proper nutrition they need to learn, while growing and developing into successful young adults,” said Scott Schuster, Nutrition Outreach Specialist.

Meals will not be served on the July 4th holiday.
