From a June 12, 2019, Everett Public Schools news release.
Many students depend upon food programs during the school year and the summer meals programs continue to provide healthy meals when school is out. These sites are open for any child, one to 18 years of age, to drop in for a free meal.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) summer meal programs operate in partnership with the federal government, state agencies, and local organizations to serve free meals to children age 18 years and younger.
USDA reimburses school districts for the meals served; state agencies oversee the program; and local organizations, including schools, nonprofits, parks and recreation departments, libraries, and faith-based groups serve the meals.
Summer meals programs are critical to children in need. Only a portion of students participate in summer meal programs compared to those that participate during the school year.
Summer meals are available at the following locations and times (subject to change, visit food and nutrition website for up-to-date information). Questions? Contact Jenna Lewis in Food and Nutrition Services at 425-385-4380.
