Washington-Morgan Community Action to Host USDA Summer Food Service Program

The Washington-Morgan County Community Action Program announces the sponsorship of the USDA Summer Food Service Program for Children. Free meals will be made available to all children 18 years of age and under or persons over 18 who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be medically or physically disabled.

For a growing number of children, school lunch and breakfast have become principal meals of the day. During the summer months, these meals are not available and children go hungry. Studies show that children who do not receive proper nutrition over summer months begin school six months behind their peers. The summer nutrition program is an important component of school readiness and an outlet for socialization over the summer for children who are not part of any other structured summer programming.
The program will start June 21 and last till August 20. Reservations for the meals need to be made the day before by contacting the site. Free hot meals will be served Monday through Friday at noon at the following sites:

Old New Matamoras Elementary School
1000 Stover Dr.
New Matamoras, OH
Reservation Number: (740) 373-3455

Reservation Number: (740) 962-3827

Malta United Methodist Church (In the Annex)
390 N. Main St.

The meals will be provided without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Any person who believes he or she has been discriminated against in any USDA-related activity should write or call immediately the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Director, Office of Civil Rights, Room 326-W, Whitten Building, 14th & Independence Ave. SW, Washington, DC 20250-9410; (202) 720-5964 (voice or TDD).
