CCPS to Continue Meal Service During the Summer

Since the closing of schools due to the COVID-19 health emergency, Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) has been offering free meals to children at more than 50 school campuses and mobile sites throughout the community. The effort is extremely important to all involved. It alleviates child hunger and allows for our students to be eager and prepared for learning.

 

With the last day of school quickly approaching (June 3), it is important for families to know that the Nutrition Services department at CCPS plans to continue its free distribution of healthy, nutritious meals to children through Summer BreakSpot, which is part of the national Summer Food Service Program.
