Tyler Kids Are Eatin’ Free This Summer

Now that many kids are out of school for the summer, who’s cookin’?

The federal government puts money toward summer lunch programs across the country, and the Tyler program is just getting started this week.

Beginning Thursday, June 5th, and every Monday through Friday this summer, several different locations are serving breakfast and lunch to kids 18-years-old and younger.

East Texas Food Bank provides the free meals at 27 sites in East Texas through the Summer Food Service Program that runs through August 28th, including sites in Arp, Mineola, Jacksonville, and several in Tyler.

It’s a convenient way to fee the kids during weeks that they don’t have camps and other summer obligations, and it doesn’t cost a thing.  You can even get a free ride for the kids.

Each location has the specifics on the times that meals are served and other instructions.  There’s no program for parents to apply for with the Summer Lunch Program, and you can click HERE for more.

If your kids are anything like mine, they request Nutella sandwiches just about every day, and this is a great way to keep that from happening.  Try something new kiddos!  And they just may make some new friends along the way.
