Summer Meals: The Basics

  • The Clarke County School Nutrition program will pack and serve lunch meals to select sites around the community this summer! This year, students will be able to make choices from carefully packed coolers and insulated hot boxes.  This means, students will get to select at a minimum three of the five menu items that will be offered.  Most days, the menu will consist of an entree choice, a fruit choice, two vegetable choices, and milk.  Students will not have to take one of everything, but they will need to make a selection that meets our meal requirements.  Trained SN staff will be onsite to serve meals to ensure that meals selected meet the guidelines set by USDA.

    All meals will continue to be offered at no cost to children ages 0 - 18 years of age.

    Summer Meal Dates: Monday, June 3rd - Friday, July 19th

    Summer Meal Service Times: 11:00am - 1:00pm

    Length of Meal Service: 20 - 30 minutes per site
