School district will provide summer meals for children

The Cordova School District is participating in the Summer Food Service Program, which provides meals to all children up to 18 years of age, regardless of race, color, national origin sex, age or disability.

Breakfast will be served from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mt. Eccles Elementary School in Cordova.

School district officials also announced this week at several outlets, including The Cordova Times, Cordova Radio and GCI Cable, that these meals will be provided on weekdays from June 1 through Aug. 5.

For the past two years, due to concerns about the worldwide pandemic, the program was limited to the distribution of bag lunches for the entire week on one day each week during summer months.

Individuals with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information, including Braille, large print, audiotape and American Sign Language should contact the agency where they applied for this benefit. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the Federal Relay Service at 800-877-8339.

Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
