Youth Net to offer free meals for students this summer
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — To assure all youth in the community have access to nutritious food, Marshfield Clinic Youth Net is providing a free Summer Food Service Program thanks to a partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Youth Net Manager Randy Neve. “Helping parents meet nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
The program provides free nutritious meals to children ages 18 and younger at a time when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Young adults age 18 or older determined to be mentally or physically disabled and who participate in a public or private nonprofit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals. Free lunches and snacks are also available to siblings.
Lunch will be served from 12:15-1:15 p.m., and snacks will be served from 4-4:30 p.m. Children not enrolled in Youth Net afternoon programming must be picked up by 1:30 p.m. at the Youth Net site, 1017 S. Central Ave. in Marshfield.
