In an effort to provide nutritious meals to students during the summer months, the Escondido Union High School District’s Nutrition Services program this week announced a program in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service.
All kids will be served. There is no enrollment and no charge.
Beginning in June, ANY child 18 or under will be able to eat breakfast and/or lunch at any of the district’s five high schools and other sites including; Orange Glen, Escondido High, San Pasqual, Del Lago Academy, Valley High, Washington Park, and Grove Park. All locations will be closed for July 4.
These free meals will be offered Monday-Thursday at the school sites and Monday –Friday at Washington Park. Lunch will be served at all locations. Breakfast will be served at Orange Glen High School and Washington Park. These meals will help to ensure that the community’s children do not go hungry and that they receive the many benefits of healthy eating. See attached list for dates and times.
No application or registration is necessary.
