BDUSD To Offer Free Meals To Kids This Summer

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Unified School District will be providing free meals to children this summer. The Summer Food Service Program, launched in 2018 in partnership with the district’s food service provider – Taher Inc., provides meals to kids during the summer months when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. The program is available to any person 18 years or younger and persons 19 or older with a physical or mental disability. Meal distribution will be located at the Beaver Dam High School on 500 Gould Street every Wednesday this summer from 4pm to 5:30pm, beginning June 2nd. Three days’ worth or seven days’ worth of meals can be picked-up. Food Service Director Stephanie Young says this program fills a void created when school lunches are not available. She says helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of the program. School officials note that meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
