The DeKalb County Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs is participating in the Summer Food Service Program from June 2 to July 22.

Nutritious meals will be provided to eligible children ages 18 and younger.

Many children, who eat free or reduced-priced meals during the school year, miss out on nutritious meals in the summer, according to a DeKalb County statement.

The program is designed to ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

The public will be notified as additional sites qualify to participate in the program.
