The Niagara County Youth Bureau has announced site locations for the Summer Food Service Program. Monday's announcement coincides with the start of the summer food-service season.
The Summer Food Service Program ensures that children who are economically disadvantaged continue to receive nutritious meals during summer vacation, Youth Bureau Director Meghan Lutz explained. Meals are comparable to the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs served in local schools throughout the academic year.
Lutz noted that the Summer Food Service Program is funded by the federal government. It provides free meals to all children at approved SFSP sites. Sites are located within areas that have significant concentrations of low-income children.
Meals are provided to any children age 18 and under. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.
Free meals are served Monday through Friday, beginning Monday and continuing throughout the summer at the following open sites in Niagara County:
Altro Park, Dolan Park, Outwater Park
91st Street Playground, Center Court (D'Amelio Park), Doris Jones' Family Resource Building, Gill Creek Playground, Gluck Park, Hyde Park Playground, Liberty Park, Lockport Park, Niagara Falls High School, Packard Court Community Center, South Junior Park, Stephenson Avenue Playground.
For further information including dates and times of site operation, contact Lutz or Rodney Alaimo at 716-278-6872.
In accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
