DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs is seeking sites to participate in the Summer Food Service Program June 3 to July 19. The Summer Food Service Program is a U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded program that partners with agencies to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

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.

Applications and full program site participation requirements can be found at www.dekalbcountyga.gov/parksunder Summer Food Application or picked up Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Mason Mill Recreation Center, 1340 McConnell Drive, Decatur. The deadline for completed applications is Friday, May 17.

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

For more information, contact the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs at 404-371-2711.
