In observance of the Independence Day holiday, the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will not be distributing meal kits on Friday, July 3, at the Acreage Branch Library and the Puffin Learning Center.

Instead, the Acreage Branch Library will distribute meals on Wednesday, July 1, and the Puffin Learning Center will distribute meals on Thursday, July 2, along with regularly scheduled distribution sites throughout the county.

Regularly scheduled distribution will resume Monday, July 6. To check dates of service for all SFSP meal distribution sites, click here.

The SFSP provides meals and snacks to eligible children age 18 and under during the summer months (June through August) and in times of emergency. Meals and snacks are also available to persons with disabilities, over age 18, who participate in school programs for people who are mentally or physically disabled. Youth Services administers and monitors this program, funded by USDA and the Department of Education. Sites are located throughout Palm Beach County in low-income neighborhoods.

Parents picking up kits without their child present must bring identification for the child. Meal kits will not be provided to parents who do not bring their child or do not provide proper identification. Proper safety measures must be practiced.

Sites will continue to distribute seven days’ worth of meals to each eligible child once a week through Friday, August 7. For locations and times of service, visit
