Summer Meal Program - Summertime brings a break from school... but the need for good nutrition doesn't take a break!

Learning does not end when school lets out. Neither does the need for good nutrition.

 

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the School District of Monroe 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.  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.

Monroe Middle School will be providing FREE breakfast and lunch during Summer School 2019. Breakfast will be served from 7:45 AM to 8:15 AM and Lunch served 11:45 AM to 12:45 PM.  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 [sponsor spokesperson].  “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
