The Seamless Summer Program is funded by the US Department of Agriculture and was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

“We encourage families to take advantage of the opportunities to ensure their children have nutritious meals our schools can help provide,” said Dann Carlson, assistant superintendent of the Office of School Facilities and Support Services in a department press release. “Your child does not have to be enrolled in school to be served a meal. Contact the school in your area to help us prepare for the food service.”
