The Niagara County Youth Bureau is sponsoring the summer food service program (SFSP), which it said ensures all children continue to receive nutritious meals during summer vacation.

Meals are comparable to the national school breakfast and lunch programs offered throughout the school year. SFSP is a federally funded program that provides free meals to all children, age 18 and younger, at approved sites. 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. There will be no discrimination during meal service.

Free meals will be served weekdays at the following sites (most begin June 28; meals will not be served July 5).

•Lockport: Altro Park, Dolan Park, Lockport Salvation Army, Outwater Park

•Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls Public Library, Packard Court Community Center

•Niagara Wheatfield: Colonial Village School, Tuscarora School, West Street School

•North Tonawanda: Payne Park

•Kenmore/Tonawanda: Sheridan Parkside Community Center, Lincoln Park
