Summer Food Service for Students




Murfreesboro City Schools announces its sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program

(SFSP) at twenty-four locations this summer. With the school year coming to an end, the MCS Nutrition Department will be kicking off the Summer Food Service Program in May. In addition

to designated school cafeterias, Patterson Park, The Den Community Center and Discovery

Center will serve as summer feeding sites for breakfast and lunch. The CHOW buses will act as mobile dining rooms and serve meals to areas of Murfreesboro that are not in walking distance of a permanent site. The summer food program provides easy access to healthy and nutritious meals for students age 18 and under during the summer break. “The school year isn’t the only time children get hungry,” says Sandy Scheele, nutrition supervisor for Murfreesboro City Schools. “The summer food service program allows us to effectively reach our students all year.”

 

This will be the fourth-year meals are provided via the CHOW Buses and the 16th year for the MCS Summer Food Service Program. The program will run May 29 through July 27. For a complete list of participating locations, dates and times of meals, visit www.cityschools.net.

The Tennessee Department of Human Services administers the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Free meals will be available to children 18 years of age and under without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age or handicap.

 

Children do not have to register in advance, simply stop by one of the locations at the designated times to enjoy a healthy meal. Murfreesboro City Schools is a district of twelve schools committed to the academic and personal success of each child.
