Agency aims to feed SCV youth in need

With more than 12,000 Saugus, Castaic, Newhall and Hart district students utilizing the free and reduced lunch program last year, hundreds of SCV students could be at risk of experiencing hunger during summer vacation without the nutritional offerings provided to them during the school year.

As a result, the Santa Clarita Food Services Agency has invited all children who are between the ages of 1 and 18-years-old to participate in a free lunch at various locations in the area.

The USDA Summer Meal Program is a federal program that provides meals, free of charge, to all children.

There is no parental income restrictions, but meals must be consumed on the facility premises.

Disabled persons 19 years and older who participate during regular school periods in a public or private non-profit school program for the mentally or physically disabled are also eligible to participate in this program.

Parents are invited to direct questions to the Santa Clarita Valley Food Services Agency at 661-295-1574 ext. 103, or visit one of the locations where meals will be served.
