Summer Food Program Begins May 18 In Volusia County

Volusia County’s Human Services Office will sponsor a Summer Food Service Program from May 18 through Aug. 14 to provide free breakfast and lunch meals for children ages 18 and under. The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides nutritionally balanced meals during summer break when schools are closed. 

Due to coronavirus concerns, the first two weeks of the program will feature grab-and-go meals at 12 sites. Parents are asked to pick up meals in the sites’ parking lots, where volunteers will give them breakfast and lunch for each child in the car. Meals will not be provided for children who are not in the car.
