SummerFood picks up where school lunches left off
Children 18 years of age and younger in low-income communities can receive a free breakfast and lunch until August 21, 2009 through the SummerFood Program operated the DHS Office of Community Services (OCS). The program is generally tied to a recreation program hosted by the communities. Delicious, nourishing meals are served weekdays at approximately 120 locations throughout Allegheny County. A site supervisor and accompanying staff are present to assure the well-being of the children.
For information on SummerFood locations and meal times, visit www.alleghenycounty.us/dhs/food.aspx where a link to an interactive map and a sortable list is provided under the SummerFood heading. Additional questions may be directed to OCS at 1-800-851-3838.
The SummerFood Program, which serves children and youth without regard to gender, race, color, national origin or disability, is made possible through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Division of Food and Nutrition. Any complaint of discrimination should be submitted in writing within 180 days of the incident to the Secretary of Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1400 Independence Ave., S.W., Washington, DC 20250.
