Hillsborough Feeding Hungry Kids this Summer

Hillsborough County, Fla. (May 23, 2018) - Hunger doesn't take a break in the summer. Neither do those working to get food to the children who need it.

Hillsborough County is once again participating in the Summer Food Service Program, which provides free nutritious lunches and afternoon snacks to children at more than 50 sites throughout the county. This year's program runs from May 29 to Aug. 3.

The Summer Food Service Program will provide a balanced meal during summer vacation when school meals are not available. The meals and snacks will be offered at local parks and other convenient locations to children under 18. Applications are not required. Nearby sites can be found online, or for more information, email summerfoodprogram@HCFLGov.net or call (813) 276-8625.

The Summer Food Service program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered locally by Hillsborough County Aging Services. The department will provide fun and interactive nutrition education to promote healthy eating and lifestyle choices.
