Marion County Schools offer Summer Feeding Program

Marion County Public Schools once again offers its unconditional summer meal program to local students.  The Summer Food Service Program provides nutritionally-balanced meals without charge to any student who wants to eat. This year, from June 11 – August 2, the following 22 central kitchens are providing meals on various schedules to 16 satellite locations throughout Marion County:

 

·       Belleview Elementary

·       Belleview High

·       Blessed Trinity

·       Boys & Girls Club

·       Dunnellon Elementary

·       Dunnellon High

·       Saddlewood Elementary

·       Sparr Elementary

·       Vanguard High

·       West Port High

At most sites, no application or income information is necessary to qualify; children simply show up to eat.  Children 18 years and younger are eligible for a breakfast and lunch without charge, including sandwiches, cereal, juice, fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, and cookies.  Serving times vary by location.

The program is similar to the National School Lunch Program and offers nutritionally-balanced meals to needy children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, or disability during the summer vacation when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.  

Marion County Public Schools operates the Summer Food Service Program through reimbursements from Florida’s Department of Education and the U. S. Department of Agriculture. 

For more information, please contact the School Food Service Office at 352.671.4190.  Parents may also call the Information Hotline at 1.800.622.5985.
