Free nutritious food for youth under age 18 this summer
All 6,925 Wakulla youth under age 18 are eligible to receive free meals during the summer at the Summer BreakSpot, the state’s summer nutrition program provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Summer BreakSpots opened in Wakulla County beginning June 6.
This communication is part of Wakulla’s campaign to ensure more families know about the sites in their community.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is leading the campaign in partnership with Florida Impact and the Florida Partnership to End Childhood Hunger, representing hundreds of community-based organizations across the state.
“We’re excited that Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, his staff and our community partners in Wakulla County have made it a priority to expand and promote the summer feeding program so more kids have access to nutritious meals during the summer,” said Debra Susie, executive director of Florida Impact. “We encourage families in Wakulla County to find a Summer BreakSpot near them for free nutritious meals in a safe, supervised environment for their children.” There is no application, survey or qualification process. Just call the site in advance and be there at the times noted below. We encourage churches and individuals who know of children who would benefit from the program to share news of the program, or better yet, take children to breakfast or lunch at the closest site.
