Volusia County’s Community Assistance Division is seeking sites to serve children in the 2023 summer food program, which will operate from June 5 to Aug. 11.

The federally funded program provides free and nutritious meals to children 18 and younger in geographical areas where at least 50% of the children are eligible to receive free or reduced school meals.

A site must be an organization — such as a public agency, daycare, church or nonprofit — located in Volusia County, and must be able to receive daily meal deliveries to distribute meals to children.

There is no cost to participate. Refrigerators will be provided if needed during the program. Participating sites must adhere to health and safety guidelines.

Interested organizations may request an application by contacting Patricia Hubbard at 386-736-5956, Ext. 12984, or [email protected]

Applications must be submitted by March 24.
