Spartanburg School District 6 will begin a summer partnership with the USDA to distribute free breakfast and lunch to any and all children during the summer break beginning next week.
“District Six, we always want to put our students first. That’s first and foremost in what we do,” Ron Jones, Director of Foodservice for Spartanburg School District 6, stated in an interview.
A crew is already preparing and packaging frozen meals, and they hope to provide a variety of food alternatives for children. Meals will be served with milk and juice.
A food truck or a school bus will bring a week’s worth of breakfast and lunch to each site every
Wednesday beginning June 9th and ending July 28th.
The following is a list of locations and the times when meals will be delivered:
- 10:30-11:00 Canaan Pointe (200 Canaan Pointe Dr.)
- 11:30-12:00 Saint Matthews (101 St Matthews Ln.)
- 12:30-1:15 Spartanburg Memorial Airport Park (500 Ammons Rd) at the waterpark
The best part is that you don’t have to be a District 6 student to take advantage of the program.
“We feed any child, 18 and under, that appears at one of our sites,” Jones said.
This summer, every Spartanburg County school system, as well as Greenville County Schools, will provide free meals to children.
