CITRUS COUNTY -- The Boys and Girls Clubs of Citrus County in Lecanto will sponsor a Summer Food Service Program in June, July, and August.
This program is similar to the National School Lunch Program because it provides nutritionally balanced meals to needy children regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, handicap, age, or national origin during summer vacation when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.
All children 18 years old and younger, both enrolled and not enrolled at open sites, are eligible for meals at no charge. The programs are only approved for geographical areas of need where 50 percent or more of the children qualify for free and reduced price meals during the school year.
Summer feeding sites at schools provide meals to all children in the area in addition to those enrolled in summer school.
The following sites will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program: the Crystal River Unit, 405 SE Seventh Ave., Crystal River, 563-2395 and the Inverness Unit, 1545 Forest Drive, Inverness, 341-2507.
