Summer Food Service Scheduled to Begin June 17 in Port St. Joe

Posted: Updated:

With summer right around the corner, it's time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. The Gulf Coast Workforce Board will be providing free nutritionally balanced meals to children during the summer through the Summer Food Service Program.

This summer from June 17th – August 2nd, 2013 meals will be served at the Washington Gym Complex located at 414 East Kenny Street in Port St. Joe Monday through Friday (closed July 4 - 5 in observance of Independence Day).  Lunch will be served from 12 pm – 1 pm with a snack to follow at 2 pm.

Gulf County children, age 18 and under, regardless of race, color, sex, disability, age, or national origin may come to eat.

For more information, contact Gulf Coast Workforce Board at 850-913-3285.  Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like the Gulf Coast Workforce Board to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer.
