Summer Food Program Ready To Kick Off Again

Sum­mer food pro­grams here in North­west Ohio are get­ting ready to kick off. The North­west­ern Ohio Com­mu­nity Action Com­mis­sion offers the pro­gram, along with the U.S. Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion and Ohio Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture. The aim is to make sure that kids get free and healthy lunches when school is out for the sum­mer. This year, there will be 13 sites, and hun­gry kids don’t need to even show proof they are in the free and reduced lunch pro­gram in order to get a meal in the sum­mer food ser­vice pro­gram this sumemr. There is no reg­is­tra­tion required. Meals are served to chil­dren ages 1–18, but an adult needs to accom­pany chil­dren younger than 5. Last year in the five-county region, there were 1,909 chil­dren who were served 15,002 meals over the sum­mer. Call 419–784-2150 ext. 1110 for more infor­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter chil­dren. The sum­mer food pro­gram is funded by the Ohio Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion through the U.S. Depart­ment of Agriculture.
