Free meals available during summer months

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

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.
