MARSHFIELD — Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Unified School District of Marshfield announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
The Summer Food Service Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture 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.
The following locations will be serving the free meals this summer: Madison Elementary School, 510 N. Palmetto Ave., Marshfield, June 10-14, lunch 11:30-11:50 a.m.; Grant Elementary School, 425 W. Upham St., Marshfield, June 17- 26, lunch 12:05- 12:20 p.m.; and Marshfield High School, 1401 E. Becker Rd., June 17-26, breakfast 7-8 a.m. and lunch 11:30-12:30 p.m.
