USDA Meals for Kids Site Finder (Summer Site Finder) https://www.fns.usda.gov/meals4kids
USDA works closely with states to ensure that children who receive free or reduced- price school meals can get the nutrition they need when schools are closed – whether during summer break or unexpected closures during the school year. Through USDA’s summer meal programs, approved sites in communities across the country can serve meals to kids up to age 18 at no cost. Families can use this tool to find directions to nearby meal sites, as well as their hours of operation and contact information.
The Summer Meals Site Finder has officially closed for the season now that schools are back in session. Check back in early May 2023 when the Site Finder will go live again for the 2023 summer period.
Families seeking food assistance for their children can also contact The USDA National Hunger Hotline, operated by Hunger Free America. The hotline can be reached Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET. at 1-866-3-HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) (for English) or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273) (for Spanish).
The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association will be hosting Youth Leadership Camp this summer from June 12th – 15th at Pine Creek Camp in Pine Village. Any current 7th or 8th grader is invited. If you are interested, come to the office for an application. Please see Mr. Pettit if you have any questions.
