OCO Nutrition Service Summer Dining Program Offering Free Meals to Kids | Education

FULTON — For children who receive free and reduced-price meals at schools, summer can mean hunger and a lack of nutritious meals. Oswego County Opportunities (OCO) has partnered with the United States Department of Agriculture to fill this void by bringing the Summer Food Service Program to Oswego County.

“Summer is an exciting time for kids to want to play with friends, a week at camp, a family vacation or time at the pool,” said OCO Nutrition Services Coordinator Lori Halstead. “But just as learning doesn’t stop when school ends, neither does a child’s need for good nutrition. The summer dining program provides free meals for children during school vacations. There are no income conditions. All children 18 and under are welcome to enjoy a free meal at designated sites. All meals will be served on site where children can enjoy activities and leisure.
