June 8, 2017  School may be ending for the summer, but
Indianapolis Public Schools will continue to provide meal service to students
during the break.   IPS’ friendly Food Service staff will offer free breakfast and
lunch at selected sites around the district June 12 through July 21. This
year’s offerings include 34 locations, an increase of five locations over last
summer and 15 over two years ago. Plus, for
the first time, the district is expanding its service to include a pilot project
at an apartment complex to serve nutritious meals to as many students as
possible when school is out. “We have found that the lack of transportation to the school locations
can be a barrier for some students to receive the much needed meals during the
summer,” said Director of Food Service Dena Bond. “We know that food insecurity
is a big issue in our community, so we want to continue to explore ways to
bring food to children in their home environments, when it might not be
possible for them to come to us.” Other community locations include the Haughville and Irvington
library branches.    Here’s a list of all summer meal site locations and times.
