Info Sheet - Summer Feeding Program

Every year, when the school year ends, children who rely on school meals served through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs are at serious risk of going hungry. This is where the Summer Feeding Program comes in and helps bridge the hunger gap.

Salt River Schools is proud to sponsor the Summer Feeding program again during summer 2019. The Summer Feeding Program provides any child 18 years and younger access to free, nutritious meals while school is not in session.
33% PARTICIPATION INCREASE IN 2018

The number of meals and snacks served grew overall at most sites in 2018. To help serve Community kids, Salt River Schools partnered with the WOLF in 2018 to add the Red Mountain Branch Boys & Girls Club as a serving location. The overall growth at the sites and the addition of the WOLF location increased participation by 33% in 2018. That equates to an additional 6,479 meals and snacks served!
