2010 Summer Food Service Program Begins when School Ends

2010 Summer Food Service Program Begins when School EndsNearly 250 sites will be offering free breakfast, lunches and afternoon snacks to children in economically disadvantaged areas throughout Orange County this summer. This is our third year participating in the Summer Food Service Program and we’re hoping that it is our most successful year to date.

The major obstacles for kids participating in the program are outreach and transportation. Children home for the summer may not even know that this program is available in their community.  We urge you to help us spread the word. Help us raise awareness and ensure that children have access to proper nutrition this summer.

The Summer Food Sponsors in Orange County are:
–  The Orange County School District
–  Orlando Parks and Recreation
–  Second Harvest Food Bank
–  Township of Eatonville
