Summer Meals Available to Children 18 and Under

When school is out for summer vacation, millions of children across the nation lose access to the free and reduced-price meals they receive during the school year. This summer, Kids on the Go, a program of the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank, is participating in the Summer Food Service Program. Fresh meals will be provided to all children without charge. In addition to the meals, children will be engaged in various activities such as arts & crafts, reading and physical activities. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, or against otherwise qualified persons with disabilities, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

Providing for Caroline’s Children

There are many resources available in our community to assist with the issue of childhood hunger. A website has been designed to support a new guide that was developed to help caregivers, as well as those in need, find the resource which best fits their circumstance.

Taste Testing at Caroline Middle

We are continuing to search for new menu items for next school year. Last week we had a representative from Acosta Food Group visit Caroline Middle to serve samples of a new cheese calzone product to the students. The calzones were very well received by the students.
