The Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) has announced an extension to its summer program to provide meals to children in Giles County and across the state.
With the recent approval from the USDA, sponsors of Tennessee’s Summer Food Service Program now have the ability to offer meals to their communities throughout the entire 2020-21 school year.
The goal of the Summer Food Service Program is to ensure children 18 and younger, who benefit from meal programs during the school year, continue to have that same access to nutritious meals when schools are closed, or students are unable to attend school in person.
Parents interested in finding a Summer Food Service Program feeding location close to them are encouraged to contact the TDHS Summer Food Service Program main line at 615-313-4749 or contact their local school.
In addition to children of school age, adults 19 and older with a mental or physical disability are eligible to receive free meals if they participate in a school program established for individuals with disabilities during the prior school year.
