The Kenosha Unified School District has announced the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.

KUSD to offer Summer Food Service Program

Free meals to be made available to children 18-and-under


The independent governmental body known as the Kenosha Unified School District was created in 1967 but was built on a foundation of educational excellence established by area schools as early as 1835, a full 13 years before Wisconsin even became a state.

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Kenosha Unified School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. 

Free meals will be made available to children 18-and-under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private nonprofit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.

Free meals will be made available to children 18-and-under.

The following locations will be serving the free meals this summer:

Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.

“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Tanya Ruder, KUSD’s chief communications officer.  “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”
