Because the programs run during the day, students will get breakfast and lunch at the 21 locations that offer District Summer Enrichment Programs.

Since many of the programs involve field trips, the meals will not be hot meals. The meals are state certified and are provided by the school food vendor Chartwell's.

The meals are not available for carry-out and must be consumed at the Summer Break Spot locations.

"The school district is usually closed on Friday, but we do have other programs that are open and all these sites will be open and serving food on Friday," said Deputy Superintendent Sandra Davis.

Additionally, the Mercy Chefs will be serving evening meals to students and their families at Oscar Patterson School on Tuesdays through Sundays from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. starting on June 4th.
