2011 Free Summer Meals for Kids – Because Hunger Doesn’t Take a Vacation
The Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood & Community Services (NCS) is once again kicking off the countywide USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) for school-aged children. As the sponsoring agency for this program, NCS is proud to offer 18 drop in sites and 34 sites requiring enrollment at which children can receive breakfast and/or lunch for free this summer. More sites are added as they become available. Combined, that’s over 50 opportunities where kids can receive free nutritious meals each day during the summer!
The Fairfax County SFSP cycle continues through September 2, 2011, Monday through Friday. The meal sites serve lunch and in some cases breakfast depending on the interest and operating hours of each site. Each site serves between 15 and 200 youth and an average of 2,237 meals daily. Last summer NCS sponsored sites were able to serve over 105,000 meals at 47 locations during the 10-week program.
