Pasadena Unified Announces Free Summer Meals for Area Children

Published : Monday, May 14, 2018 | 1:50 PM

The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) will offer free breakfasts and lunches for children and youth 18 years old or younger this summer through the 2018 Summer Food Program.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and PUSD’s Food and Nutrition Services Department and operated by PUSD, the city of Pasadena and other organizations, the free meals will be served at schools, parks and other sites throughout Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre. Children do not need to be enrolled in PUSD schools to receive a meal and no pre-registration is required.

The USDA’s Free Summer Meals program is an amazing program that ensures all children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Parents can bring their children to one of the 25 community feeding sites and they will be provided a free breakfast or lunch. Each school day at PUSD, we serve over 14,000 nutritious meals to students. This program provides an opportunity for PUSD students and all the children in our community to continue receiving those meals during the summer. And in my eyes, that’s a win for all the children and families in our community!

Participants just need to show up to receive a meal but must eat all meals at the site . For more information please call PUSD Food and Nutrition Services at (626) 396-5852 or visit their website at gopusd.com/summermeals. See the full list of sites below.
