This summer, the Spring Lake Park School District will again participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided at no cost to all children ages 1 to 18 years old at Park Terrace Elementary School, 8301 Terrace Rd. NE, Spring Lake Park, and Westwood Intermediate and Middle School, 711 91st Ave. NE, Blaine. Participants can park in the front entrance lots and enter through the schools’ main entrance doors.

The program at Park Terrace will run Mondays through Thursdays, June 10 through Aug. 22, with breakfast available from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and lunch available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The program at Westwood will run Mondays through Thursdays, June 24 through Aug. 1, with breakfast available from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and lunch available from 11:30 a.m. to noon. Meals will not be available at either location on Thursday, July 4.

Participation in the summer food service program does not require an application and is open to all children ages 1 to 18 years old and is not limited to Spring Lake Park School District students, up to the capacity of the facility.

This is the ninth year that the summer food service program will be provided in Spring Lake Park Schools. The program is available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is based on the number of students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. The program’s purpose is to make meals available to area children who may otherwise not eat properly or often enough.
