Summer Food Service Program runs in Anoka-Hennepin, SLP districts

Staff Writer
Since 2013, I have primarily covered the Anoka-Hennepin and Spring Lake Park school districts as well as the city of Spring Lake Park for ABC Newspapers.

The Anoka-Hennepin and Spring Lake Park school districts are once again participating in the United States Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.

Meals are provided to children under 18 at no cost through this program.

Many Anoka-Hennepin sites began serving this week; others will start feeding families Monday, June 19. Sites offer breakfast, lunch or both through mid-July or mid-August, depending on the site.

Sixteen school sites and three community locations will offer meals. Two of the community sites are managed by Youth First Community of Promise, and students must be enrolled there to receive meals at no cost.

Other sites serve all children, regardless of whether they are enrolled in the Anoka-Hennepin School District, and adults are allowed to purchase meals. Breakfast is $2.25, and lunch costs $4.

A complete list of Anoka-Hennepin sites and their hours of operation is available at www.bit.ly/2rS9wKQ

Spring Lake Park Schools began serving breakfast and lunch Monday, June 12, and will continue to do so Monday through Thursday each week, with the exception of July 3 and 4, through Aug. 24.

Breakfast and lunch are served in the Spring Lake Park High School cafeteria, 1100 81st Ave., Spring Lake Park, and families are asked to use door 29 to access the cafeteria.

Breakfast is served from 8:30-9 a.m., and lunch is provided from 11:45-12:30 p.m.
