This summer, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County will be participating in the USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) administered through the Indiana Department of Education. The Summer Food Service Program was established to ensure that all children have the opportunity to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all school aged children.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County will sponsor an open site at the Boys & Girls Clubs Jeffers Unit to service youth participating in our summer programs, youth from homes in the surrounding neighborhood, Ivy Green Apartments, Country Club Apartments, Southview Apartments, and Greenwood Apartments. We will provide breakfast and lunch at no charge to children ages 18 and under (no baby food will be provided) at designated sites Monday thru Friday, June 1st until July 24th.
All meals will be prepared at the Richmond High School central kitchen and will be delivered to the distribution sites. Boys & Girls Club staff will be on-hand to distribute the meals and monitor the meal times.
