The School District of Lee County is partnering with the Florida’s Summer BreakSpot program to keep children healthy and well nourished while school is out. The Summer BreakSpot Program allows the District’s Food and Nutrition Services Department to provide free meals to children who are 18 years and younger at no cost to them while school is out during the summer.
This summer, meals will be served at more than 75 locations in Lee County between school-based sites and community sites between June 21st and July 28th. There are no income requirements or registration. Anyone age 18 or younger may come to eat.
“The School District of Lee County has partnered with the Summer Feeding Program for over twenty years. Providing summer meals to the students when school is not in session is an important service that we are able to provide,” said Food and Nutrition Services Director Kandy Messenger.
There are three ways to find a Summer BreakSpot site and serving times. Dial 2-1-1, Text “FoodFL” to 877-877 or Visit www.SummerBreakSpot.org.
There will be a summer meals kickoff event at Paul Sanborn Park on Monday, June 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The Cape Coral Parks & Recreation Fun-Mobile will be on site until 1:00 p.m. to offer a variety of free games and activities. Media is invited to attend.
