School Food Services Offering Free Lunches


The schools and the city are teaming up to offer free snacks and lunches for children throughout the summer. The school district’s Food Services will deliver federally funded scratch-cooked meals via mobile cafes at city parks in lower-income neighborhoods. Adults older than 18 can also purchase meals at $3.50. The program began on Tuesday at the Westside Community Center with guest celebrity diner Mayor Helene Schneider, and it will run through 8/17 there, as well as at six other sites.
