School District Expands Summer Meals Program

For the seventh year in a row ​— ​now with new sites in Goleta and Isla Vista ​— ​Santa Barbara Unified School District has expanded its summer meals program, offering free breakfast, lunch, and supper to anybody 18 years of age or younger, no paperwork required. “We’re trying to keep our kids dialed into wholesome food,” said program director Nancy Weiss. Diners ages 19 and up can purchase breakfast for $3; $4 buys lunch or dinner, and all the money goes back into the program. To locate nearby meal sites, text “summerfood” to 877-877.
