There are many government programs that seek to provide resources to those who need them. One of them is the Summer Food Service Program offered by the United States Department of Agriculture.
“USDA reimburses program operators who serve no-cost, healthy meals and snacks to children and teens in low-income areas,” reads the website for the program.
The Charlottesville Parks and Recreation Department is a local provider in the program.
“Meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), disability or age, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service,” reads the city’s website.
The food will be distributed at four locations.
