Summer nutrition program begins June 5 

nutrition

The city of Garland Fair Housing Services Department is excited to announce its annual Summer Nutrition Program, beginning June 5. The program offers free nutritious meals to children ages 1-18 and young adults with disabilities when school is out for the summer. No registration or proof of income is required! Call 972-205-3382 to learn more.

 

Meals alternate between hot and cold entrees, while selected sites also provide cold breakfast. Nutrition program meal sites are located in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals under the National School Lunch Program. Most meal sites will offer activities that support the “3 E’s of Healthy Living,” education, exercise and eating right. The summer activities are designed to exercise the body and stimulate the mind making for an easier transition back into the school year.

 

See a schedule of this year’s meal sites on the Fair Housing Services page at GarlandTX.gov.

 

Come discover a new way to have fun!
