Now that Summer break has arrived for Seminole County students, the Seminole County School System, and its nutrition Director Ivey McLendon, want to make sure that no student goes without food this Summer.
During the month of June, Summer meals will be available for all students and children eighteen years of age and younger. A seven-day meal box containing breakfast and lunch selections will be available for pickup from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Wednesdays – June 9, June 16 and June 23.
Meal boxes will be distributed from the school bus awning area outside of the Seminole County Elementary lunchroom, located on the back side of Seminole County Elementary School. No one will be allowed to exit a vehicle and meal boxes will be placed in the vehicles.
Seminole County Elementary School is located at 800 Marianna Highway in Donalsonville.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federal USDA Child Nutrition Program that provides reimbursement for healthy meals and snacks served to children from low-income areas during periods when schools are closed for vacation. The program also allows for the service of meals in year-round schools during breaks.
