Summer meal program sites added

Poughkeepsie City School District added three new summer meal distribution sites to those already being provided throughout the city. Meal service will end Tuesday, Aug. 31 unless otherwise noted.

There are now 13 open sites, where anyone 18 and under can receive meals and five closed sites where only those registered will receive free meals.

The PHS mobile site will offer hot and cold meals, while the other locations will offer only cold meals, Allison Jackson-Stephenson, interim director of food services, said.

Breakfast may include yogurt, string cheese, juice/fruit, milk, bagel, cereal, breakfast bar, breakfast bun and banana bread among other items. Lunches will be assorted deli sandwiches with juice, milk, fruit and a snack, she said.

Sites will operate Monday through Friday. The district is not offering weekend meals. However, a separate Summer Backpack Program, which includes food items for the weekend, will serve previously identified families with the ability to add to the list, Jackson-Stephenson said.
