Free summer meals while WS/FCS students are not in school

For many kids, summertime means food, friends and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful and family food budgets must be stretched even further.

Free summer meals are available to kids and teens ages 18 and younger at sites across our community. There is no paperwork to fill out – just visit one of the sites during mealtime and your child or teen can receive a fresh, nutritious, delicious meal for free.

Meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination during the meal service.
