As the regular school year comes to a close, it’s that time again to remind you of the perennial adage, “Childhood hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation.” Now, more than ever, summer feeding is crucial to the health of America’s school children.
As noted on the Food Research and Action Committee (FRAC) website, when school lets out, millions of children lose access to the school breakfasts, lunches and afterschool snacks and meals they receive during the regular school year. FRAC’s most recent data shows that only 1 in every 7 low-income children who participates in the school lunch program receives summer lunch. The Summer Nutrition Programs help fill this gap by providing free meals and snacks to children who might otherwise go hungry.
Did you know that instead of offering a lunch and snack you can offer a breakfast and lunch program that can generate the highest revenue from reimbursements? We can help you with this as we have a lot of experience with USDA reimbursement programs. We can supply complete, nutritious meals, approved by the state, to ensure your reimbursement, as well as help you develop the menu cycle to submit to the state.
You can choose from a wide variety of shelf-stable or frozen items for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, including our Breakfast BREAKS, Meal BREAKS, and Protein Innovations.
