For the second year, Norwich is hosting the USDA Summer Meals Program. Nutritious foods are being provided at no cost at both Perry Browne Intermediate School and at the Kurt Beyer Pool & Park Pavilion. Both locations have been offering free breakfast and lunch since the program started on July 8. At Perry Browne, as many as 40 children, adults, and student members of LPP (the Liberty Partnership Program) are being served per meal. Numbers are higher at the Kurt Beyer Pool where as many as 50-60 participants are enjoying not only a balanced meal but also a day of swimming and summer park program activities.
The driving goal of the Summer Food Service Program is to ensure that students have access to nutritious meals during the gap in the school year when school is not is session. All students up to age 18 can visit either site (and up to age 21 for special education students) for a free breakfast and lunch. Adults are invited as well and pay only $2 for breakfast and $3 for lunch.
Meals Served Daily (Monday - Friday):* Breakfast: 8:00am to 9:30am * Lunch: 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
Families do not need to sign up to be part of the program, and the service will continue to be available until Friday, August 16.
