RACINE – Racine Unified School District will have summer meals available for students this year, through a partnership with the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This partnership allows school-aged children to have access to nutritious meals during the summer months. While school is out of session, meals will be available at RUSD schools and community centers.
The SFSP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Free and reduced lunches are typically unavailable during summer months, but now Racine community members have access to lunches if they are:
- children 18 years of age and under
- a person over 18 years of age who is determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled. This individual must participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Cheryl Herman, Food Service Coordinator. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
