PUSD Announces Free Summer Meals Available for Area Children

The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) will offer free breakfasts and lunches for children and youth 18 years old or younger this summer through the 2014 Summer Food Program. This is the 34th consecutive year that PUSD has participated in the program.

The free meals, made following U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrition guidelines, will be served at schools, parks and other sites throughout Pasadena and Altadena. Children do not need to be enrolled in PUSD schools to receive a meal and no pre-registration is required.

The 2014 Summer Food Program is sponsored by the USDA and PUSD's food services division and operated by PUSD, the city of Pasadena and other local organizations.  "The USDA's Free Summer Meals program ensures all children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session," said Ralph Peschek, PUSD Administrator of Child Nutrition. "All a child has to do is show up at one of over 25 community feeding sites and they will be provided a free breakfast or lunch, no questions asked."

Participants just need to show up to receive a meal but must eat the free meal at the community feeding site.
