Miami Public Schools are making sure students do not go hungry during the summer months. Director of nutrition services, Jessi Maple says the district received funding from a state grant to operate this program from May 21st through June 15th at Nichols Elementary.
They will be serving free breakfast and lunch to any person under the age of 18 in need of a meal. Maple adds there are no income requirements to receive the meals. She says this is the first year they will be operating the program.
"It is a good chance for them to get fed while parents are working and there is a lot of kids that don't have access to a hot meal in the summertime and we can give them that,” says Jessi Maple.
Maple adds breakfast is served Monday through Friday from 8 to 8:30 and lunch from 11 to 11:30. If you are interested, no registration is required.
