Summer food program for kids


Fri, Jun 6th, 2014
Posted in Preston Health & Wellness

With summer here, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. Fillmore Central Schools will be providing free meals for children this summer!

Free meals for children will be served at the elementary school in Preston on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We will serve breakfast from 8-9 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. -12:30 p.m. each day. We plan to begin serving free meals on Monday June 9 and continue until Friday, August 15. Meals will not be served July 4 and the week of July 21-25.

There are no income requirements. Any child age 18 and under may come to eat for free. Children are expected to behave appropriately during these free meal times. Children are not to be in the school building between meals unless under the supervision of school staff.

Free meals will follow the USDA guidelines for summer food service programs. These guidelines recognize the individual needs of children of various ages and meals are adjusted for children aged 1-6, 7-11, and 12-18. They include milk, fruits, vegetables, breads, and meat. Monthly menus will be available for viewing on the school website (www.fillmorecentral.k12.mn.us) or picked up in the lunchroom.

Please use the southwest door (near the lunchroom) when entering the building for breakfast and/or lunch. Children who are attending SAC, daycare, summer rec. activities, or summer camps will be taken to breakfast and/or lunch by staff.

There will be some construction activity on the school parking lot this summer. The entrance door for breakfast and lunch may change depending on the status of the parking lot. We will have signs directing you to the appropriate entrance if necessary.
