Free Summer Meals for Kids

Posted by Tim Howington on 4/21/2016

With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time for communities and parents to start thinking about activities for kids when school is out. With delicious, fresh local fruits and veggies in season, naturally it should be easy to keep kids healthy during summer months. However, without the structure of school and after-school activities, these lazy summer days are an open invitation for our kids to constantly snack, and spend endless hours playing video games and watching TV.

One way to make sure your kids eat healthy this summer is for them to participate in the Oxford School District's (OSD) FREE Summer Food Service Program for children. From June 1 to July 22, our summer meal program will serve free breakfast and lunch to children ages one to 18. Meals will be served Monday through Friday at Oxford Intermediate School, 501 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. Breakfast is from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and lunch is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. No forms, applications, or I.D. are required to participate.

For more information or if you have any questions, contact OSD Child Nutrition Director Tim Howington by email at thowington@oxfordsd.org or call (662) 234-3541.
