Volusia County's Human Services Office is seeking agencies to participate in the Summer Food Service Program, which will run June 10 to Aug. 16.
The federally funded program provides meals and snacks to all children ages 18 and younger in geographical areas where at least 50 percent of the children are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. It was created to ensure that children in low-income areas can receive nutritious meals during summer vacation.
Approved sites will receive meals and snacks to serve to participating children.
Schools, public agencies and private nonprofit organizations must apply by March 15.
Applications may be obtained by calling (386) 254-4648, Ext. 12984, in Daytona Beach or (386) 423-3375, Ext. 12984, in New Smyrna Beach.
Applications may be obtained in DeLand and Deltona by calling (386) 736-5956, Ext. 12984.
