The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.

The following locations will be serving the free meals this summer Turtle Creek Elementary and Delavan Darien High School.: breakfast at DDHS 7:35-7:55 and Turtle Creek 7:40-8 am, lunch 11-12:30 at both locations. The dates for Turtle Creek is June 19- July 18 and the High school June 19-August 1. Both sites will be closed on July 3-4.. Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.

Additional breakfasts will be served at 7 sites from June 12-September 1st from 9-9:45; the sites are Chestnut Ridge Apartment 419 Autumn Dr.; Town Hall Apartments 5698 Townhall Rd.; Town Square Apartment 538 Sugar Creek Rd.; Phoenix Park 111 E. Wisconsin St; and Elmhurst Apartments Elmhurst St. Delavan; also in Darien: Darien Park at 15 Park St and in Elkhorn: Elkhorn Commons at 925 Gorman St.

“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Tina Hudy, Child Nutrition Director for Delavan Darien School District.. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
