DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs is urging agencies serving as camp sites to apply for the Summer Food Service Program. The program, which will be held June 1–July 24, ensures school children have nutritious meals during the summer.

To qualify as a site, 50 percent of children served must meet the income guidelines for free- and reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. Children who are members of households that receive food stamp benefits or Aid for Dependent Children (AFDC) assistance automatically qualify. Funding for the Summer Food Service Program is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and targets children up to age 18.

Applications and full program site participation requirements can be found at Summer Food Application or picked up Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Mason Mill Recreation Center at 1340 McConnell Drive in Decatur.

Agencies with summer camps that are interested in becoming a program site should call Rose Myrick at 678-698-1114.
