Free Summer Meals Program offers nutritious meals to kids

Summer Meal Program flyerChildren and teens ages 1-18 can enjoy a free lunch this summer through the Simplified Summer Food Program (SSFP) for children. The program addresses the need for nutritious meals during the summer months when school is not in session. It is sponsored by Battle Ground Public Schools and funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Children do not need to attend a Battle Ground school to participate; all children and teens are welcome.

Lunches will be provided at two Battle Ground locations:

  • Kiwanis Park, 422 SW Second Ave., from June 24-Aug. 16 (lunch will not be served July 4). Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • Maple Grove cafeteria, 610 SW Eaton Blvd., from July 22-Aug. 18; no meal service is provided at this location on Fridays. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
