Summer Meals

July 2022 Talking Points: MCFI is again sponsoring Summer Food Service Program

By Candace Romano, Associate Director of Marketing

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Milwaukee Center for Independence announced the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.

“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Heidi Chada, Vice President of Employment and Commercial Services for MCFI, an affiliate of CFI. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”

Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. People over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private nonprofit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
