Mt. Diablo Unified kicks off free summer meals program with

BBQ and fun kid-tivities

Kids and teens can enjoy a fresh, healthy meal all summer long, plus enjoy gardening and reading activities – at no cost!

 

WHAT:  Kick-off BBQ celebrating free summer meals program for students in the Mount Diablo Unified School District. The federally-funded program will provide free meals to children and teens while school is out as a way to keep kids healthy and engaged with their schools and local community during the summer. By partnering with the Contra Costa Library, MDUSD is encouraging children take advantage of summer reading programs to keep learning going year-round, feeding minds as well as bodies.

 

WHEN:  Wednesday, June 28, 2017, 12:15 – 2:00 p.m.

 

WHERE: Wren Ave. Elementary School, 3339 Wren Ave., Concord (Get directions)

 

OVERVIEW: 

In partnership with the California Summer Meal Coalition, Mt. Diablo Unified is teaming up with regional farmers to offer fresh, healthy summer meals prepared with fresh fruits and vegetables provided at no cost to residents ages 18 and under. To find locations serving free breakfasts and lunches to kids this summer, text FOOD or COMIDA to 877-877 or visit https://www.summermeals.org/ and enter your address, city, or zip code.

BACKGROUND:

About 22.1 million children and teens receive free and reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program, but only about 1 in 6 of those – approximately 3.8 million – participate in the summer meal programs.

 

The Seamless Summer Meals program, sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service, helps ensure that students who would typically receive school breakfast and lunch during the school year continue to have access to free and healthy lunches during the summer time, hence ensuring the food program is “seamless’ as it begins shortly after schools let out for summer break. The MDUSD program is offered at 16 school locations for kids and teens 18 and younger, and disabled adults. (See list of schools)

 

MDUSD is one of 58 school districts across the state which participate in California Thursdays, a program committed to serving freshly- prepared meals with California-grown ingredients. Extending the program into summer supports children’s health, local farmers and producers, and the community as a whole.
