The FCS Nutrition Twitter page announced on Thursday that the last day of Summer Curbside service will be July 21st.
“On this #TBT we celebrate over 1,000,000 meals served & look forward to serving YOU this school year!
The LAST day of the Summer Curbside service will be Wednesday, July 21st‼️ Don’t miss out – join us for FREE Summer Meals! #FuelingGA #KeepGAFed #NoKidHungry #GSNA21″
Summer Curbside service gives out free meal kits from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, as mentioned on the Fulton County Schools (FCS) website. Children 18 and under, as well as special needs individuals that are under 21, are eligible for the meals.
Individuals do not have to be FCS students in order to receive the free meal kits. FCS main purpose for the meal kits is to combat childhood hunger, and when a school may not be in session for students during the summer months, the Summer Curbside service is there to give students “a weeks’ worth of meals” to last them to the next distribution opportunity, as mentioned on the FCS website.
The goal of the Summer Curbside service is also listed on the FCS website.
“The Fulton County School Nutrition Program recognizes the important role that school meals play in combating childhood hunger. To meet the needs of our students & children in the community, we will continue to provide nutritious meals even when school is not in session!”
