GWINNETT SUMMER MEAL PROGRAM PROVIDES FREE MEALS TO KIDS AT 25 LOCATIONS

(Lawrenceville, Ga., May 10, 2021) – Gwinnett County is helping ease hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing to feed Gwinnett's children during the summer.

After Gwinnett County Public Schools wraps up its meal service, the Gwinnett Summer Meals program will provide free grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches for children 18 years of age and younger at County parks, libraries and other locations beginning June 1. Meals are also available for adults 19 years of age and older with physical or mental disabilities who are enrolled in a school-based program.

Parents or children can pick up nutritious meals from 25 locations around the county. Meals can be picked up Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. while supplies last at the following locations:

Gwinnett’s program is part of the Summer Food Service Program offered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is sponsored by the nonprofit Georgia Nutritional Services Inc., which will provide the vendor for the meals. Funding for the program comes from the USDA.

The Summer Meals program is also hiring seasonal part-time meal compliance leaders for 30 hours per week, Monday through Friday from May to August. Qualified applicants must be 18 years or older and should have customer service, food service and general labor experience. Learn more about the position and apply at GwinnettCountyJobs.com.
