Beaver Dam School District Offering Meals To Children 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, 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 held at a variety of locations throughout Beaver Dam, Monday through Thursday, beginning today, June 13th. The program goes until August 11th and there are no meal pickups scheduled for July 4th through the 8th.

The district’s Business Manager Ann-Marie Malkovich 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 this 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.
