Sponsors needed for summer meals program

The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction’s child nutrition services office is accepting applications for sponsors of the 2008 summer feeding programs for children. 

Eligible sponsors are those who operate a nonprofit meal program during the summer school break to children age 18 or younger. Qualified sponsors will be reimbursed for eligible meals served. The meal sites must be located in areas where at least 50 percent of the children are qualified for free or reduced-price school meals or where at least 50 percent of the children enrolled in a specific program are eligible for free and reduced-price school meals.

Participation is open to public and private nonprofit local education agencies, residential summer camps, certain private nonprofit organizations and units of local, county, municipal, tribal, state or federal government.

For further information, contact Donna Parsons, Child Nutrition Services, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, at 360-725-6200 or by mail at P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200.
