2015 Summer Food Service Program

See the list of Summer Feeding Sites: Cumberland County Positive Youth Development Coalition helps bring more free meals to County Youth

“This year’s USDA Summer Food Service Program has been significantly expanded in Cumberland County as a result of the efforts of the Cumberland County Positive Youth Development Coalition. The county will enjoy at least 3 new sponsors and 20 new sites where children can receive free and nutritionally balanced lunches this summer.

According to data provided by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, in 2014, 88% of youth in Cumberland County who were eligible for the Summer Food Service Program did not receive its benefits. In the January meeting of the Cumberland County Positive Youth Development Coalition, Tracy Swan, Sr. Project Coordinator, Walter Rand Institute, tasked its Members with establishing at least one new site for summer 2015 in each of the three major municipalities: Bridgeton, Millville, and Vineland.”
