During summer break, some disadvantaged children miss meals they depend on at school.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals at Summer Break Spots when school is not in session.
This summer the USDA program plans to serve over 200 million free meals to kids 18 years and younger. The area’s Summer Break Spots serving the free meals to help close the childhood hunger gap include: W.T. Bland Library 1995 N. Donnelly St., Mount Dora Serving days & times: Monday-Friday through Aug. 9 (closed July 4) Lunch: 11:15 a.m., (Must be in line by 11:15) Boys & Girls Club Eustis 3551 E.
