The Clayton County Public Schools is set to participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Seamless Summer Meal Program.
School officials said the program is scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 29, and will conclude on Thursday, June 21.
Breakfast for neighborhood children will be served from 9 a.m., to 9:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday, and lunch will be served from noon to 12: 30 p.m.
Students attending summer school will also receive free meals, which will be served at an earlier time said school officials. Meals will be offered at the following locations: Callaway and Marshall elementary schools; Eddie White Academy; Morrow Middle School, and Drew High School.
Adults over the ages of 18 accompanying children to the program sites can purchase breakfast for $1.75 and lunch for $3. School officials are asking participants to enter schools through the main office, sign in as a visitor, and obtain a visitor’s pass to proceed to the cafeteria for a breakfast or lunch meal.
Once the meal is completed, school officials said participants should return to the schools’ main office to sign out and immediately exit the building. Groups larger than eight people are asked to complete a “Seamless Summer Outreach Program Interest Assessment form” by Wednesday, May 23. The form can be obtained from the summer school site or the School Nutrition Office.
School officials said the purpose for the summer food program is to give neighborhood children 18 years old and under an opportunity to receive free breakfast and lunch meals during the summer.
