Waterville, Winslow public schools and Vassalboro Community School will participate in the Summer Meals Program sponsored by USDA.

There will be 12 open sites in Waterville and five sites in Winslow and Vassalboro where lunches will be provided to all children free of charge. Because of the high number of students qualifying for free and reduced price meals in these area schools, the three communities qualify to offer these meals free to any child 18 years or younger.

Bring children for a free lunch on week days from Monday, June 24, through Friday, Aug. 16, to any of the sites listed at the scheduled time.  These meals meet Federal Nutrition Standards and focus on fresh fruits and vegetables. All meals must be eaten on-site. Trained school food service staff will prepare and deliver these meals to the sites listed below.
