Free Food For Children This Summer

Windham Southeast Supervisory Union is pleased to announce its continued sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be provided this summer to all children without charge regardless of income or residence.  Meals are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

Children and families are invited to the Kick Off Event on June 25th at Living Memorial Park Pool.  Children and adults eat for free at this event.  Lunch is from 12-1pm. Free passes to the pool will be given with the meal, so stay the afternoon to swim.  Other activities include a fire truck display, the Bookmobile giving out free books, and a craft table. Gather information about resources and summer activities.  Catch a free ride on The Current’s Red Line bus; just let the driver know you are headed to the Summer Meals Program Kick Off Event.

Throughout the summer, these OPEN sites serve free meals to all children 18 years of age or younger on a first come first serve basis.  There are no sign ups or eligibility paperwork for kids to eat at these open sites.
