DECATUR, GA–DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs will host the Summer Food Service Program for needy children June 1-July 30. The annual effort, which ensures school children have nutritious meals during the summer, is seeking sites to host the program.

 

To qualify as a site, 50 percent of children served must meet the income guidelines for free- and reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Children who are members of households that receive food stamp benefits or Aid for Dependent Children (AFDC) assistance automatically qualify. Funding for the Summer Food Service Program is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and targets children up to age 18.

 

Applications and full program site participation requirements can be found at www.dekalbcountyga.gov/parks under Summer Food Application or picked up Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Mason Mill Recreation Center at 1340 McConnell Drive in Decatur.

 

Agencies with summer camps that are interested in becoming a program site should call Rose Myrick at 678-698-1114.
