Federal Program Provides Harrison Public School Free Summer 2024 Lunch

Jul 05, 2024
Harrison Public School Federal Summer Lunch Program

This summer, Harrison Public Schools is launching a Free Summer Lunch Program for local children, running from Monday, July 8, 2024, through Thursday, August 1, 2024. The program will be held at Washington Middle School, located at 1 North 5th Street, Harrison, NJ. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Access to the lunch program will be through the main entrance of the school.

The program is open to any resident 18 years old and younger who can feed themselves, ensuring that children in the community have access to nutritious meals during the summer months when school is not in session.

Funding for this initiative comes from the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), a federally funded program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). In New Jersey, the program is overseen by the State Department of Agriculture. The SFSP aims to provide free, nutritious meals to children in low-income areas to ensure they receive adequate nutrition when school is out.

This initiative reflects the commitment of both federal and state agencies to combat child hunger and support the well-being of children during the summer. For more information about the program or to find other participating sites, residents can visit the New Jersey Department of Agriculture's website or contact the local school district.
