Scottsdale schools, USDA to provide free food for students during summer break

The Scottsdale Unified School District has announced the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program for Children, a program that provides free food to children.

Meals will be provided to all children, ages 18 and under, without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service, according to a press release.

According to the Food and Nutrition Services website, the Summer Food Service Program ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.
