District 211 ‘Seamless Summer’ Program Provides Meals to Community Youth
New this summer, any child under the age of 18 will be eligible to receive a free breakfast and lunch from Palatine or Hoffman Estates High School. The program, called “Seamless Summer,” aims at providing individuals in the community with meals during the summer. All children 18 years and under are eligible to receive meals Monday through Thursday from June 9 through July 22.
“Demographics in District 211 have changed, which demonstrates the need to feed children in our community,” said Mary O’Connor, director of Food Service at District 211. “The Seamless Summer program allows the food service department to reach out to students that are not enrolled in summer school. This program gives children the opportunity to have access to good nutrition throughout the summer.”
At Palatine High School, community breakfast will be served from 8:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and community lunch will be served from 12:30 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. At Hoffman Estates High School, community breakfast will be served from 7:15 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. and community lunch will be served from 11:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
In addition, all District 211 students currently enrolled in summer school will receive a free breakfast.
