CCS Free Summer Meals Program

Child Nutrition has added a location in the Douglas Byrd area where kids and teens can receive free meals this summer.  Starting on Monday, June 3rd, 11:30a-12:30p, we will be serving Free Meals to kids & teens ages 18 and under at the St. Paul’s in the Pines Church on the corner of Ireland Drive and St. Paul’s Avenue.   No application or registration required. Please help us get the word out to your parents.  We are asking that you post this on your social media and send it out by any other electronic means that you have to reach hour students’ parents.  Children benefit by receiving nutritious meals.  Households benefit by offsetting the increase in grocery bills they incur when kids are home during the summer.  See flyer for more information.
