For Immediate Release
Summer Food Program Feeds Kids For Free
COVENTRY – With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. Coventry Public Schools provides free meals to children during the summer.
This summer, meals will be served at a curbside, grab and go site at Coventry High School every Friday during the summer starting July 2, 2021 from 12 noon to 1pm.
There are no income requirements or registration for this site. Any child under age 18 may pick up meals. The child does not have to be present to receive meals, but the family will be asked for the child's name and school. For more information, contact Harold Sands at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we will serve free meals at programs held at the following sites where children must register and be enrolled in the program to receive a free meal. Blackrock Elementary School, Hopkins Hill Elementary School, Tiogue Elementary School, Washington Oak Elementary School, Western Elementary School, Alan Shawn Feinstein Middle School, Coventry High School, Westwood YMCA, and the Parks and Recreation Summer Program at Payne Field.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Coventry Public Schools to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer.
