These sites will be open for one hour per day, and offer five-day meal kits for children. The program will continue through August 20, but no meals will be served on July 5 in honor of the holiday.

The Summer Meals Program is federally funded, and was created to ensure meals for all children 18 and under. Children do not need to attend an SPS school to qualify for the program.
