Free Summer Meals Program Begins
The free summer meals program kicked off this week and will last until August 6. The Santa Barbara Unified School District will be offering breakfast (8 a.m. – 9 a.m.) and lunch (11 a.m. – 1 p.m.) every weekday at six locations: Franklin Elementary School, Monroe Elementary School, La Cumbre Junior High, Westside Neighborhood Center, Parque de los Ninos (lunch only), and Bohnett Park (beginning 7/23). Adults can eat for $3 – $4. Last summer, the program served over 50,000 meals; the district is expecting to serve 75,000 this year.
