Sites will distribute seven days’ worth of meals to each eligible child. Today was the first day of food distribution through Youth Service Department’s pre-summer feeding program and 1,008 meals were served. The next distribution day will be Wednesday at the Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay libraries.

Meal distribution will be available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, or until all meal kits are distributed. Currently, pre-summer feeding sites will distribute food once a week through Wednesday, May 27.
