Free Summer Lunch Program

NO COST SUMMER LUNCH ONCE AGAIN AVAILABLE:
GREEN MT. UNION HIGH SCHOOL DINING ROOM

Green Mt. High in Chester is once again participating in the very popular no cost Summer Lunch Program. A no cost lunch will be offered daily at the school in our dining room Monday through Friday all summer long. When school lets out there is a huge number of households that lose access to the school lunches they receive during the school year. Our Summer Programs help fill this gap by providing free meals to children who otherwise might go hungry. Plus, summer meals are sometime paired with enrichment activities such as our Summer Recreation Programs. We are in hopes of increasing the number of kids participating in the Summer Recreation Camps offered here in Chester knowing that there are Summer Meals available. Studies show that when children don’t get proper nutrition, they fall behind their peers academically when returning to school in the fall. The no cost lunch is for anyone 18 years old and younger. There is no registration or application process involved. Simply stop by the High School and have a healthy lunch. We will be serving lunch Monday through Friday in the dining room from 11-12. Menus will be available online and we can e-mail one to you if you like. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds the Summer Food Program and the State of Vermont administers the school meal service. All children 18 years and under can receive free lunch here at Green Mt. Union High.
