City of Cleveland Recreation Centers Serve After School Meals

City of Cleveland recreation centers are currently serving after-school meals to children ages five through eighteen at all locations. Meals will be served Monday through Friday while the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) is in session as well as during winter and spring breaks and during declared school snow days when students are not required to attend class due to inclement weather.

The after school meals program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, administered by ODE, and sponsored by the Children’s Hunger Alliance. There is no cost to families for participating in this program.

Parents and guardians will receive program participation packets and will be asked to provide the name, date of birth and the allergy needs of their participating students.  Families are urged to contact their local recreation centers for specific serving times as well as for information regarding students who are enrolled in school yet younger than five and older than eighteen.

 

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
