" An innovative partnership has formed to address food insecurity for children in Madison this summer. REAP Food Group, Madison Metropolitan School District, the City of Madison, Madison Parks, Public Health Madison & Dane County and Midvale Baptist Church are coming together to improve and expand summer meal sites.
The MMSD Summer Food Program, which provides free summer meals to all children 18 and under at over 40 sites city wide, will begin on Monday, June 20. The expansion efforts will serve more children through the program by increasing public awareness and improving access to the free meals for both children and families.
Special efforts will take place at three meal sites this summer. The summer meal partners are adding Elver Park as a new summer community meal site, serving free lunches June 20-Aug 12, from 12:00- 1:00pm to all children and to all adults who accompany children. Parks is a partner in providing the Elver shelter and services related to the facility space. Fun, educational, farm to school activities will take place daily at Elver Park starting at 11:30am. Team members from Midvale Baptist Church and REAP Food Group will serve lunches and lead activities.
