Fulton Public Schools and the YMCA of Callaway County once again are pairing up to offer free meals for area children over the summer break.
Administered by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Summer Food Service Program provides breakfast and lunch to students 18 and under, and eligible disabled adults over 18.
Breakfast will be served 7:30-8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday from May 28 to June 24 at Bush Elementary School, Fulton Middle School and Fulton High School.
Lunch will be served from noon to 1 p.m. on those same dates at Bush and the middle school.
Lunch also will be served 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from May 28 through Aug. 1 at the YMCA.
Rhonda Fletcher, FPS food services director, said registration is not necessary to participate in the program.
“Just come in, and we’ll make sure they have something to eat,” Fletcher said.
She said 350 youths participated in the program last year, including summer school students.
She said that level of participation is why the school district continues to work as a partner for the Summer Food Service Program.
“We know there are kids out there that need a good meal in the summer,” Fletcher said.
