200,000 meals for children to be served through USDA-sponsored summer food service program

Utah Food Bank is proud to announce that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has officially declared sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program. The program will extend Utah Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program by providing free meals to children 18 years of age and under in both “Open Sites” and “Enrolled Programs.”

Approximately 200,000 meals will be served at 40 sites through the Summer Food Service Program, and consist of either breakfast, lunch or supper depending on the site. Sites will serve either individual meals or a box of non-perishable meals containing seven breakfasts and seven suppers. Utah Food Bank will prepare meals for “Open Sites” and “Enrolled Programs” throughout the state. Each category has unique qualifications as outlined on Utah Food Bank’s website, and a complete list and schedule of summer meal sites can be found at www.UtahFoodBank.org/SummerMeals.
