County provides free meals for kids

Volusia County’s Human Services Office is sponsoring a Summer Food Service Program from May 18 through Aug. 14 to provide free breakfast and lunch meals for children ages 18 and under. The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides nutritionally balanced meals during summer break when schools are closed.  

The following sites will participate in the Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be served Monday through Friday unless otherwise indicated.  

The sites listed as grab-and-go will provide breakfast and lunch meals for those who drive to the sites within that meal time. Because of coronavirus concerns, parents are asked to pick up grab-and-go meals in the sites’ parking lots; volunteers will give them a meal for each child in the car. The sites listed with breakfast and lunch times will only be providing the stated meal at that time and the meal must be eaten on site. Sites will provide adequate measures to protect against COVID-19.
