Free, healthy meals available throughout summer months
If your family is in need of healthy, free meals during the summer months, there are several options across the region.
The Community Action Planning Council of Jefferson County and the Watertown City School District sponsor a Summer Food Service Program that runs from June 26 through Aug. 18. Through this program, children have access to free, nutritious meals at 34 sites in Jefferson County. Meals meet federal nutrition guidelines and are provided to all children 18 years old and under (up to age 21 for those with a disability).
