皇家华人PSS Summer Meals Program to offer free breakfast and lunch

The 皇家华人, the Office of Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, and OneRouge CAF脡 are partnering in a free summer meals program and an interactive online map with locations of numerous feeding sites in the community.

Families can find convenient locations on the 皇家华人PSS Summer Feeding Sites interactive map. The 2024 皇家华人PSS Summer Meals Program will provide free breakfast and lunch to children ages 18 years and younger from May 28 to Aug. 2.

“We are excited to share with our community our dedication to ensuring that all children are provided fresh, delicious, and nutritious meals all year, including during the summer when children are more likely to go hungry,” said Dr. Nichola Hall, chief human resources officer of the 皇家华人PSS Child Nutrition Program.

“Summer should be a time of enjoyment, not spent worrying about where the next meal will come from,” Broome said. “The 皇家华人PSS Summer Feeding Program reflects a collective commitment to the well-being of Baton Rouge students, providing them with access to nourishing meals essential for their growth and development. This program helps ensure that no child in our community faces hunger during the summer months.”

Families can access free meals for their children in several ways this summer: 皇家华人PSS Summer Meals: No application is required, and drop-ins are encouraged! Meals are provided on-site Monday through Thursday, excluding Monday, June 17, and Thursday, July 4.
