For many families on a tight budget, finding ways to keep kids healthy, active and engaged can be tough during summer vacation. The district is working with the USDA and Town of Liberty Parks and Recreation to ensure that kids stay healthy when school’s out.

The Liberty Central School District will be participating in the USDA Summer Food Service Program from June 27 of this year through August 12. Participating sites (listed below) will provide free, nutritious meals to kids and teens 18 and under.

This is the third year that Liberty has offered the program. Last summer, the district served over 7,000 free meals to children ages 2-18.

Meals will be provided to all children without charge. There are no income requirements to participate in this summer program, and students do not have to be enrolled in Liberty Central Schools.

Participating sites:

  • Liberty Elementary School – 201 Main Street
    Beginning June 27, lunch will be served to any child, accompanied by an adult Monday through Friday from 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the Liberty Elementary School cafeteria.
  • Francis A. Hanofee Park – 136 Sunset Lake Road
    Beginning June 27, the district will provide breakfast and lunch each week day to participants of the Town of Liberty Parks and Recreation Day Camp participants at Hanofee Park from 8:45 - 9:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.
  •  Liberty Middle/High School – 125 Buckley Street
    Beginning July 5, the district will also provide breakfast and lunch each week day to students taking part in the full day Grade K-6 and Grade 7-12 Summer School Programs at the Liberty Middle School from 7:30 - 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.
