NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Beginning Monday, Metro Action Commission will continue its Free Summer Food Program again this year for kids from ages six to 18 looking for a healthy meal for breakfast and lunch.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free meals to areas where at least 50% of the population qualifies for free or reduced meals during the regular school season throughout Davidson County.
Last year Metro Action prepared a daily average of 4,000 breakfast and lunch meals during the summer to 108 sites such as apartment community rooms, churches, summer camps and community centers. The agency expects to serve 110 sites this year.
"We are grateful that our organization can provide this program during the summer because we understand the value of nutritious meals for young people that may otherwise go without," said Marvin D. Cox, Community Programs Director.
The Summer Food Service Program begins Monday, June 4 through July 27.
