Ulrich Announces Free Summer Meal Program
Healthy and great tasting free breakfasts and lunches are once again on the menu for all the children of New York City ages eighteen and younger. No registration or documentation is required for those wishing to participate.
Council Member Ulrich said, "This program is not only good for our children, it is important to many families who are struggling during this economic downturn. A wide variety of studies have consistently arrived at the same conclusion; the healthier a child's diet is, the better that child will do at school and beyond. I hope the children of my district will take advantage of this summer program."
The free meals will be served Monday through Friday throughout the summer.
