Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. Youth do not need to be Boys & Girls Club members to be eligible. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
The Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County, located at 411 Superior ST, Antigo, WI will be serving the free meals this summer: breakfast 7:30am-8:30am and lunch 11:00am-12:00pm. Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Angel Zimmerman, Executive Director “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
