Volusia County, FL- Volusia County’s Human Services Office is sponsoring a Summer Food
Service Program for children at 77 sites from June 13 through Aug. 12.

The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides
nutritionally balanced meals regardless of race, color, sex, disability
or national origin during summer vacation when school breakfasts and
lunches are not available.

All children 18 and younger are eligible for meals at no charge. The
programs are approved only for geographical areas where 50 percent or
more of the children qualify for free and reduced-price meals during the
school year.

Meals will be served Monday through Friday unless otherwise indicated.
All sites will be closed July 4.

To see a list of county-run food sites, visit

headings will provide meals to all children in the immediate vicinity in
addition to those enrolled in summer school.

In addition to the sites operated through Volusia County’s Human
Services Office, there are several other summer food programs in the
county. To locate all food sites, visit www.SummerFoodFlorida.org.
