Summer Food Service Program Serves Free Meals At Two Township Sites

The Summer Food Service Program, a federal program that serves food and snacks to underprivileged children, has two sites operating in the township.

The sites are located at the Franklin Middle School, 415 Francis St., and Naaman Williams Park on Matilda Avenue.

The program is open to children 18 years old and younger whose family incomes are at or below 185 percent of the federal poverty level. Those older than 18 years who participate in school-based programs for those who are mentally or physically disabled are also eligible for the free meals.

The program is administered in New Jersey through the state Department of Agriculture with the assistance of sponsors. Sponsors can be school districts, local government agencies, camps or non-profit organizations.

Locally, the program is sponsored by Franklin Township.
