The Summer Food Service Program is sponsored by the Gettysburg Area School District and served at Lincoln Elementary School at 98 Lefever Street, Gettysburg PA. The Program is FREE to all children 18 years of age and under. Parents should accompany small children. Meals are distributed in a drive-thru fashion. No advance sign up is needed.
To receive free summer meals, you do not need to be on the free or reduced meal program throughout the school year. This program is open to all children 18 years of age and younger FREE of charge. Children should have the ability to chew food. Infant food is not available.
The Summer Food Service Program is a federally funded program operated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered in Pennsylvania by the Department of Education. It was established in 1975 to provide meals to children to ensure they receive the same high-quality nutrition during school vacations that they get in school during the school year. Continued nutrition helps children return to school after summer is over ready to learn.
Any organization such as government agencies, summer camps, churches and Community Action Agencies interested in helping to ensure that children in your community have access to summer meals should contact Sandra Weikert at 717-334-6254 ext. 1204 for more information.
