The Student Nutrition Services department of the Vallejo City Unified School District is pleased to announce their Summer Nutrition Program will begin on June 17, 2019. We know that learning does not end when school lets out for summer, and neither does the need for good nutrition. Nutritious Free Summer Meals are available for children and teens 18 years of age and younger at many locations throughout Vallejo during summer while school is out of session. Click on a button below to view our flyer listing specific dates, times and addresses for each location.
This is our 17th consecutive year serving Free Summer Meals to the children of Vallejo. Thanks to a federally funded program, Free Summer Meals will be served to ALL children and teens 18 years of age or younger. Click the buttons below to see our menus!
Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. Healthy eating habits are important during the long hot summer months. Eating nutritious food helps ensure students retain all that they learned during the school year, and helps them to continue learning throughout the summer. For many children, summer vacation can bring the temptation of eating empty-calorie snacks and foods that are high in sugar, fats and sodium. And for others, summer exposes them to an increased risk of hunger and developmental decline.
Summer is a time for play . . . and a time to remember to eat right. Make seasonal fruits and vegetables a high priority for your snacks and meals. Make sure good nutrition remains a priority all summer long, and students will return to school in August healthy, sharp and ready to learn!
