Media Release
Summer Food Service Program

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the School District of Wisconsin Rapids announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program, 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 eligible 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. 

The following location will be serving the free meals this summer:

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 meals are not available," said Lizzie
Severson, Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools Director of Food Service. "Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program."
