Summer Meals for
Kids: Hungry children cannot learn. Lack of proper
nutrition during the summer months exacerbates the phenomenon
known as summer learning loss. The Summer Food Service Program,
also known as Summer Meals, is designed to fill the gap between
school years and give children the fuel they need to play, grow
and return to school ready to learn. Administered by the Maine
Department of Education and funded by the USDA, this program
provides free summer meals for kids and teens 18 and under. Stop
by the library to pick up a bookmark with program details or
http://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks for information
about a meal site in your area.
