The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), 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 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.
Summer meal programs at Goldin will start on June 20, the same day as COA’s Summer Day Camps open. The Holton Center serves dinner every day it’s open, and will continue all summer long, but will not offer a lunch program because the center hours are limited to 1-8 p.m.
The following locations will be serving the free meals this summer:
Goldin Center –Teen Programs – 5:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m., Monday – Friday
2320 W. Burleigh St.
Milwaukee, WI 53206
Holton Center Teen Programs – 5:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m., Monday – Friday
510 E Burleigh St
Milwaukee, WI 53212
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 lunches are not available,” said Tom Schneider, sponsor spokesperson. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
