The goal of the USDA Seamless Summer Nutrition Program is to provide free meals and snacks to all children under the age of 18.
The program provides the first free meals of summer starting on Monday, June 2, and will continue through Thursday, July 31.
Whitfield County families who are struggling to make ends meet may take advantage of the federally-funded summer feeding program to provide free healthy meals for their children. Breakfast is served from 8 to 8:45 a.m. and lunch serving times vary from 11:15 a.
m. until 12:40 p.m. depending on the site. Meals will be served on weekdays.
The community program is completely funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. No local tax dollars supplement the program and there is no additional tax burden on the local school systems or community.
Sites include church buildings, community centers, playgrounds, apartment complexes, parks and other areas where children gather in the summer.
Each site is limited to two servings per day and may provide breakfast, lunch, or a snack. Food is for children 18 years old and younger, and must be eaten on site.
