To help emphasize the importance of offering nutritious meals to students over the summer months, the Pulaski Community School District has announced its sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and provides nutritious meals to children over summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Meals will be free to children 18 and younger, as well as those over 18 who are disabled and participate in a nonprofit school program during the regular school year.
The Pulaski Middle School will serve breakfast from 7:40 – 8:15 a.m. and lunch from 11:00 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. The dates meals will be offered include June 12-16 and June 19-30, as well as July 10-21 and July 24-28. They’ll also serve meals during Stepping up to Middle School Aug. 21 – 25.
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Caitlin Harrison, PCSD Food Services Director. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
