“We served over 50,000 children last summer," Food Services Director Nancy Weiss said. "Our district's Summer Food Service Program remains a vital nutritional bridge during the summer months, when students are not in school and wholesome food may not be an option.
“Our menu is kid friendly, scratch cooked, and delicious. The menu includes favorites like grilled cheese, tacos, spaghetti, sub sandwiches, hamburgers and more.”
