As the 2017-2018 school year is winding down for everyone, kids, teachers, and food service professionals are all looking forward to sunny days, starry nights and spending quality time with family and friends.
One of the best parts of summer is, of course, the cookouts and picnics...as well as the return of fresh strawberries, blueberries, watermelons and, before too long, fresh apples.
While many children will enjoy lots of healthy foods during their summer break, a few may have not have access to all the nutritious foods they need. Fortunately, the USDA is again providing parents and their kids with information as to where they can get nutritious free meals this summer:
Parents and children can find the location and times to find healthy food options. All they need to do is visit this site and put in their address, city, state, and ZIP Code, and they'll be able to discover the places to get nutritious alternatives to picnic fare.
From all of us at here at Pro•Team Foodservice Advisors, have a safe and healthy summer!
