MUSD food program expects to serve more than 8,000 meals

MARANA - The Marana Unified School District (MUSD) Food Services Department is working to make sure that no children in the community go hungry when school is out.

Beginning on June 3, 2013, MUSD will participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Service Program, serving free breakfast and lunch meals to children under the age of 18.

Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. Hunger also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The SFP is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get free nutritious meals.

Enrollment in a Marana school is not required.
