Fuel Up for Summer Fun

Published : Monday, June 12, 2017 | 3:32 PM

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Seamless Summer Feeding Program (SSFP), known in PUSD as the Fuel Up for Summer Fun Summer Meal Program, provides free nutritious meals to children 18 and younger. These meals help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.

When school is out, the meals served as a part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are not available, and due to families’ limited budgets, or other circumstances, children will often miss wholesome meals. The Fuel Up for Summer Fun Meals Program fills that gap. This program helps in stretching food dollars for families that rely on school meals during the school year. It also helps families with the knowledge that their children are receiving healthy meals in a supportive environment when school is out for summer.

The PUSD Fuel Up for Summer Fun Meals Program serves over 60,000 meals each summer to children and youth in our local communities at23 sites. It has been PUSD’s privielage to sponsor this program in partnership with the City of Pasadena Parks Dept., Boys and Girls Clubs of Pasadena, and a number of other non profit locations in Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Mesa.

The program operates June through August, with meal times and dates varying by location. To locate the nearest site to you, meals offered, and serving time, TEXT “Food” to 877877 on your phone or go to the following website: http://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks. Summer meal site locations for 2016 will be updated in early June.
