[June 25, 2020]   LINCOLN - District 27 reminds the public that it is continuing to provide free lunches to any Illinois child 18 and under as a participant of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). SFSP is a federally funded program that provides nutritious meals through July 3.

Free lunches are provided to children 18 or younger on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The meals are drive-thru only from 11:30-noon at Central Elementary School, Northwest Elementary School and Washington Monroe Elementary School. Adults may purchase a lunch for $2. Each day participants will receive one hot meal and one cold meal for the next day, providing a total of six meals per week per child.

“District #27 is proud to provide this wonderful opportunity for Lincoln youth this summer. We invite and encourage not only our students, but all children 18 and younger to take advantage of this wonderful program and are thankful to our community partners for their help with providing volunteers and program support,” said Kent Froebe, District 27 superintendent.

The First Presbyterian Church of Lincoln and St. John’s United Church of Christ is providing volunteers for the program.
