This summer, the Thomaston-Upson School System will offer free meals to area children ages 1-18 through the U.S.D.A “Seamless Summer Options for Children” program. The program runs June 3 - August 2, with all sites closed July 1- 5. Community members interested in hosting a Summer Meals site must attend one of the mandatory trainings at the Board of Education office on Wednesday, May 15, at 10 a.m. or 3:30 p.m.
Children may go on summer vacation, but hunger does not. The Summer Meals Program bridges the summer hunger gap and confirms that our community cares about the well-being of children all year long. T-U Schools looks forward to partnering with community leaders, churches, and summer enrichment coordinators to offer free summer meals to children.
