(Murfreesboro, TN) ‐ Free meals will be available for children in Murfreesboro throughout the summer months. The Murfreesboro City Schools Nutrition Department is feeding children across the city through their Summer Food Service Program during June and July.
The CHOW Bus will be hitting the pavement in an effort to provide easier access to healthy and nutritious meals for children ages 18 and under during the summer break. In addition to designated school cafeterias, Patterson Park, McFadden Center, and Discovery Center will serve as summer feeding sites for breakfast and lunch.
“The school year isn’t the only time children get hungry,” says Sandy Scheele, nutrition supervisor for Murfreesboro City Schools. “The summer food service program allows us to effectively reach our students all year.”
Children do not have to register in advance, simply stop by one of the locations at the designated times to enjoy a healthy meal. Murfreesboro City Schools is a district of thirteen schools committed to the academic and personal success of each child.
The Tennessee Department of Human Services administers the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Free meals will be available to children 18 years of age and under without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age or handicap.
