MUSD's Seamless Summer Food Service Program Offers Meals to Students in the Community

Starting June 20nd until July 29th, The Montebello Unified School District will provide free meals through the Seamless Summer Food Service Program for local children who are 1 to 18 years old. The program is designed to continue providing nutritious meals when school is not in session.

Childhood food insecurity remains at unacceptable levels across the country and children are mostly acutely at risk in the summer months when they do not have access to school meals.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) operates summer meal programs to address this problem. Through MUSD's participation, the program is helping to ensure that those same children to not go hungry in the summer.

The Seamless Summer Option combines features of the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program and Summer Food Service Program. This option reduces paperwork and administrative burden to make it easier for schools to feed children from low-income areas during the traditional summer vacation periods.

For more information on this program or its serving times, please call the MUSD Nutrition Services Department at (323) 887-7978
