Five Central AR Boys & Girls Clubs Will be Summer Feeding Sites

Will serve breakfast and lunch to Arkansas schoolchildren.
The Arkansas Foodbank is gearing up to help feed some Arkansas students while they're out for the summer break.

It's all part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program. 

Five Central Arkansas Boys and Girls clubs will serve two meals per day (breakfast and lunch) from June through August.

Breakfast will be served from 8:30-10:00 a.m. and lunch will be served from noon-1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. All meals are free.

Participating sites will be
  • Billy Mitchell Boys and Girls Club
  • Thrasher Boys and Girls Club
  • Penick Boys and Girls Club
  • Dalton Whetstone Boys and Girls Club (open for breakfast and lunch June 17-August  9)
  • Boys and Girls Club in Benton in Saline County (serving meals June 10-August 9)
All of the locations will be open sites, which means that children not enrolled in the Boys and Girls Club may eat breakfast and lunch at the sites without being a club member. However, they must have a parent with them. Children can be dropped off but only if they are enrolled club members. 

The program is designed to replace free- and reduced-price lunches that the children would normally get at school. 

Meals will be provided to all children without charge and will be the same regardless of race, color, national origin, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
