Treasure Coast Food Bank is seeking partners to expand its 2019 Summer Meals Program across the Treasure Coast. The program provides breakfast, lunch, and snacks to children once schools close for the summer and access to school cafeterias no longer is available. It lets kids be kids without worry about where their next meal will come from.
More than 46,000 students in Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River counties are eligible for free and reduced price meals at school, and once schools close for summer, families who don’t always have enough food to eat can struggle to provide the additional meals.
Through the Summer Meals program, kids have access to healthy, nutritious food in locations near their homes. Treasure Coast Food Bank partners with social service agencies, faith-based organizations, summer camps and others to provide easy access for kids throughout the Treasure Coast.
Typically the meals include fresh-made sandwiches and wraps, hand-made salads, and fresh cut fruits and vegetables. All the meals are made daily in Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Food Production Plant.
With the opening of the new facility, Treasure Coast Food Bank has set a goal of doubling the number of summer feeding sites. To become a Summer Meals site, you must be able to:
  •          Distribute the pre-made meals to children
  •          Provide a sheltered, supervised area for eating
  •          Conduct outreach to encourage kids to come to your site
  •          Attend training through Treasure Coast Food Bank
  •          Keep daily records of meals served
