Annual free summer meal program
Roseville, Calif.- The Roseville City School District’s (RCSD) annual free summer meal program launches Wednesday, June 14, 2023 and will run through August 4, 2023. Anyone 18 years of age and younger can receive free breakfasts and lunches at select campuses in the area – without the need for registration. The only requirement is the meals must be consumed on campus.
According to Feeding America, 1 in 7 children in California are food insecure, meaning they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. These children rely on the consistent breakfasts and lunches offered during the school year, but summer means no school and less access to quality nutrition. With food costs inflating and the end of pandemic-related SNAP benefits, these households are struggling more than ever to provide the meals these children need. The RCSD summer meal program aims to bridge that gap to ensure children remain fed and healthy throughout the summer months.
Participating locations include Antelope Crossing, Barrett Ranch Elementary School, Cirby Elementary School, Kaseberg Elementary School and Woodbridge Elementary School. To learn more about locations, dates and times, call 916-771-1675, ext. 50248.
