Free breakfast and lunch over summer ensure kids don’t go hungry

Summer is an exciting time for children to enjoy time with friends and family, but for many children, summer can mean many hungry days. Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child’s need for good nutrition. For the ninth consecutive year, the Franklin Special School District is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to offer a Seamless Summer Food Service program (SSFS) to children. The SSFS helps to bridge the summer hunger gap by providing free breakfast and/or lunch to kids 18 and under at community sites during the months of May, June and July.  The 2018 Seamless Summer Food Service program kicks off Tuesday, May 29. The program’s goal is to significantly reduce child hunger over the summer months so there are no forms to fill out or qualifications to meet. Adults may purchase breakfast for $2.25 and lunch for $3.50.  The FSSD will host an open dining site throughout the summer available to the community on a walk-in basis.
