District sets 2017 Summer Food Service Program sites
Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the School District of La Crosse announces the sponsorship of the 2017 Summer Food Service Program.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private nonprofit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
Adults accompanying their child(ren) may purchase a meal for $2.00 (breakfast) and $3.00 (lunch).
“This program fills a void created when school meals are not available,” said School District of La Crosse School Nutrition Specialist Marilyn Volden. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.
