The Sioux City Community School District has been participating in the Summer Food Service Program. The program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, offers free sack lunches to children aged 1-18.

Meals are available Monday through Friday at each of the brick and mortar schools, and several community locations throughout Sioux City.

Workers spend the morning packing both a breakfast sack and lunch sack for any kid that attends one of the serving locations. They typically serve between 4800 and 5,000 meals per day.

Food Services Director Rich Luze said it’s important they give these meals as families struggle year around.

“We know there are families out there that struggle on a daily and yearly basis and their struggles don’t go away during the summertime and during the school year the children are able to get the meals in school and when school is out the need is still there,” said Luze.

Many of the school locations stop serving the meals next Friday, July 30, and the mobile locations will continue serving meals until Aug. 13.
