D.C. FREE SUMMER MEALS HUNGER DOESN’T TAKE A BREAK Become a participant in the D.C. Free Summer Meals Program so that D.C.’s children can receive free breakfast, lunch, and/or snacks after school lets out – applications must be submitted By May 1, 2012. Sites that participate in the D.C. Free Summer Meals Program provide free, nutritious meals when school is out to children 18 years of age and younger. The program is especially important for the thousands of children and youth who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year. Given the continuing impact of the recession, families need help this summer more than ever. If your summer program works with low-income youth, make sure you are participating in the D.C. Free Summer Meals Program. Having a meal sponsor is a huge help to not only a summer meal site but also the summer program. The sponsor delivers the free meals to your site, contracts with the food vendor, and handles the majority of the program administration. Sites must track the meals delivered and served. There is no cost to your site if you have a sponsor! The D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) can sponsor your summer site but you must act NOW: 1. Complete the Site Information Form 2. Complete the Sponsorship Agreement with DPR 3. Send (via fax or email) the completed forms by May 1, 2012 to: Mark McCain, Office of Food & Nutrition Services, DPR Fax: (202) 541-9519 Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you have questions for Mark, he can be reached at (202) 716-9835 4. Call D.C. Hunger Solutions (Sheena Simpson—email@example.com, 202-986- 2200 x 3029) for questions or help completing the application. 5. Send D.C. Hunger Solutions an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you submitted your materials for sponsorship. This way we can track sites participating in D.C. Free Summer Meals to ensure that the growing numbers of hungry children get food this summer. Do more for hungry children! Forward this alert to any summer programs immediately. Thank you!
