Kids eat free in summer LUNCH
Food provided in June and July for SCP children
By Caleb Frey - Apr 26, 2007
With St. Charles Parish’s “Summer Food Service” program gearing up for June and July, parents can rest easier knowing their children can get healthy meals without having to pull a penny out of their pocket to pay for them.
And you don’t have to be poor to take advantage. Meals will be served to all kids regardless of how much money their parents have. And if you’re disabled, you can get the freebies up to age 25.
The St. Charles Parish School Board approved the program that is sponsored and paid for by the parish and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Meals will be served in the cafeterias of St. Rose Elementary, E.J. Landry Alternative Center, and R.J. Vial Elementary schools.
The parish’s share of the funding is $60,000.
All children in the district are eligible regardless of economic status.
Howard’s assistant, Barbara Dorsey, has been working closely with him to make sure the program is a winner each and every year - and they say it has been.
Dorsey added that anyone age 18-25 who are handicapped or disabled and enrolled in a state school could also take part in the program.
The Boutte Christian Academy will also be participating in the Summer Food Service Program starting May 23 and operating through Aug. 10 serving breakfast from 7:30 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will be closed on May 28 and July 4.
