For a fourth consecutive year, CMSD will help keep students fed during the summer by serving them a hot, nutritious lunch or dinner for free. Adults who accompany the children can eat for $3.
Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 12 schools, while dinner will be available at two schools from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The meals will be served Monday through Friday from June 3 through Aug. 2. (Note: Sites will be closed July 4-5.)
The CMSD schools are part of a broader network that also includes the Greater Cleveland Foodbank and organizations like the Cleveland Hunger Alliance, Children’s Hunger Alliance, the Cleveland Catholic Diocese and the city Parks and Recreation Department.
“Together we try to make sure that there are summer lunch sites throughout the city so there are no pockets of hunger,” said Chris Burkhardt, CMSD’s executive director of school nutrition.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture will reimburse the District for the cost of the meals.
