East Ramapo Central School District officials last week announced that the district is providing healthy meals to children of low income families during the summer break.
The program, which began July 2 and runs through August 12, is administered by the New York State Department of Education and began in 2000. The meals are being providing as part of the federal Summer Food Service Program, which provides breakfast and lunch at two schools in the district.
The school district is serving meals at Elmwood Elementary and Hempstead Elementary schools. Breakfast is served from 8:30-9:00 a.m. and lunch from noon-12:30 p.m. The two school are open sites so any student 18 years or younger in the district can go during the times meals are served and do not have to sign up for them.
