The WCCUSD summer meals program starts Monday.

With the aim of ensuring low-income students continue to have access to nutritional meals while schools are closed during summer, the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) said its Summer Food Service Program will begin this Monday.

The summer meal program runs through Thursday, August 16 and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Students can go to approved sites hosted at faith-based organizations, nonprofits, schools and local government agencies. (see the list below).

An annual kick-off event will take place Monday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the WCCUSD Nutrition Center, 750 Bissell Ave. Kids eat free while adults can purchase lunch for $3.50 during the event.
