Jacksonville children can receive free lunch and snacks

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. May 14, 2010 — The Jacksonville Children’s Commission (Commission), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Florida Department of Education will partner to provide free nutritious snacks and lunches to Jacksonville children Monday, June 14 through Friday, Aug. 13, the time period most local children are on summer break.

Any Duval County child under the age of 18 can receive a lunch by visiting one of the summer lunch sites across the city. A “Free Lunch Served Here” banner is posted at each site with the meal times indicated. Children do not need to be enrolled at the site (for example, if it is a club or program) to receive a lunch or snack — they just need to show up during meal times.

Each year, more than 12,000 Duval County children may receive nutritious snacks and lunches at no cost to parents/caregivers through the Summer Lunch Program.

Sites are located in a geographical area where there is a school with at least 50 percent of its students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program during the school year. Nutritionally-balanced meals will be provided to all children regardless of race, color, sex, disability, age or national origin, there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service, during summer vacation when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.

A complete list of summer lunch sites is available at www.jaxkids.net by clicking on “Summer Programs”. For more information, call the Commission at (904) 630-6430.
