WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the School District of Wisconsin Rapids announces their Summer Food Service Program.
The Summer Food Service Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and 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 all 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 non-profit school program during the regular school year, may receive free meals as well.
The following locations will be serving free meals this summer:
Breakfast: Monday-Friday, June 11 – July 18, 7:30-8:30 a.m. at Lincoln High School, 1801 16th St. South, Wisconsin Rapids.
Lunch: Monday-Friday, June 12 – Aug. 23, 11 a.m. – noon at Mead Park, near the Splash Pad on 14th Avenue South, Wisconsin Rapids.
