Baldwin Co. schools keeping students fed for free during the summer

MILLEDGEVILLE — Baldwin County public school students will be offered free meals during the summer months through the Seamless Summer Option program.

Sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture, the summer food program continues providing meals as offered during the regular school year, meeting nutrition guidelines. The federally-funded program is offered to communities in which majority of students qualify for free and reduced school lunches.

“The program is an extension of our regular meal program,” said Jeanne Starr, director of school nutrition. “Last year it meant quite a bit to families. Parents have been calling me asking if we’re going to run the program again this year.”

Students 18 years-old and under can eat a free breakfast and lunch in Baldwin High School’s cafeteria Monday through Friday starting June 3 through July 19. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

“Breakfast will usually consist of a meat biscuit, toast, cereal, milk or juice with fresh fruit or canned fruit,” Starr said. “Lunch will be a variety of hot and cold foods, including pizza and sandwiches with fruit and salad, milk or juice.”

Meals will not be served Thursday, July 4 and Friday, July 5.

“It looks like we're going to have more children coming than we did last year,” Starr said. “Last year we did over 30,000 meals for breakfast and lunch; the response was huge. I’m not looking for that to decrease this year; I’m already having parents calling.”

The Parent University bus will deliver and serve lunch at the following sites:

• Graham Homes at 11 a.m.

• Duplex City at 11:25 a.m.

• GNETS of Oconee at 11:45 a.m.

• River Bend Apartments at noon

• The Manor at 12:40 p.m.

• Finnagan’s Mobile Home Park at 1:05 p.m.

• 5th Street Mobile Home Park at 1:30 p.m.
