Summer Food Service Program

During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the school breakfast and national school lunch programs. What happens when school lets out? Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. Hunger also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues.

The summer food service program is designed to fill the nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need. “The lack of access to those meals means our children are spending their summer days thinking about food instead of enjoying everyday summer activities and adventures,” said Jacquelyn Linder, Nutrition Programs Director.

In an effort to ensure that every child on the Peninsula receives a nutritious lunch and afternoon snack during the summer break, the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank is participating in the summer food service program. Meals will be provided to all children 18 years old or younger without charge. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.   Meals will be provided at various sites. Please call 757-596-7188 for additional information.
