Anna Shand reports: Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a student’s need for nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program, which is administered in Tennessee by the Department of Human Services under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides free meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need throughout the summer months when they are out of school.
Bradley County Schools and Cleveland City Schools were able to feed all students free breakfast and lunch in the 2021-2022 school year, but as summer break commences, some of those students don’t have the same access to meals. In Tennessee, one in four children face hunger every day.
All children under 18 are eligible for the program. All local locations are sponsored by the YMCA of Metropolitan Chattanooga or the Bradley Cleveland Community Services Agency. Forest Grove, Ocoee Village, Spring Lake and Water Edge apartments locations will not serve food on the week of July 4.
