TCSD begins summer meal program for families facing food insecurity

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Last week, the Teton County School District began the Summer Meal Program for families facing food insecurity. The program offers free breakfast and lunch for kids 18 and younger and $4 meals for adults Monday through Thursdays from June 20 - August 11. According to Charlotte Reynolds, this is a federally funded program. "USDA provides funds to support a free summer meals program for local kids, recognizing that many students who qualify for, and are provided reduced or free breakfast and lunch during the school year often experience food insecurity during the summer break," said Reynolds. "We are providing this program to ensure that those students have access to healthy meals during the summer." The meals are provided at Jackson Hole Middle School.
