The Wadena-Deer Creek Food Service program is offering free meals for any youth 18 and under at the middle/high school this summer. Breakfast will be served 7:30-8:30 a.m. and lunch 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program runs from June 3 to Aug. 15. There will be no meals July 4-5 or Fridays in August (as well as Aug. 5 and 6).

The goal of the program is to ensure children receive a nutritious and balanced meal when school is not in session. The lunches are provided free of charge thanks to a federal grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. Adults can join their children for breakfast and lunch; however, there is a charge: breakfast $2.30 and lunch $4.05.

For more information, call Sue Motzko, WDC Food Service Director, at (218) 632-2396.
