Summer Feeding Program
- Paula Ackerman, WILLIAM G. MATHER SCHOOL
- Access to Healthy Foods
Last June through August, our school decided to do a summer food service program to continue to meet a nutritional need in our community.
How did you accomplish your goals?
We applied for the program. Our application was accepted. We offered free lunch to all youth up to age 18. This program was promoted through our local summer Day Kamp program, summer reading program at the library, and summer school at the elementary school. We averaged 86 students eating lunch daily and plan to offer the program again this summer.
