The City of Garland Fair Housing Services Department kicked off its 22nd annual Summer Nutrition Program on June 5. The program ends Aug. 4.
The Summer Nutrition Program offers free nutritious meals to children ages 1-18 and young adults with disabilities when school is out for the summer. No registration or proof of income is required.
Meals alternate between hot and cold entrees, while selected sites also provide cold breakfast. The meal sites are located in areas where more than 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals under the National School Lunch Program. Most meal sites will offer activities that support the “3 E’s of Healthy Living:” education, exercise and eating right. The summer activities are designed to exercise the body and stimulate the mind making for an easier transition back into the school year.
Come discover a new way to have fun! For more information, call Program Coordinator Pamela Harris at 972-205-3382 or email PHarris@GarlandTX.gov.
