Summer feeding programs


 

 

The Blount County Schools summer feeding program is back for a sixth year. Oneonta City Schools begins their program this year. The program, which offers breakfast and lunch, is open to children 18 and under at no cost. Meals will be offered at all county elementary schools and in the Oneonta lunchroom. (See charts for locations, dates, and times.)

The summer feeding program ensures that students enrolled in the Blount County and Oneonta City School systems continue to get nutritious meals that foster healthy eating habits. Blount County students do not have to be signed up for summer camps to participate. School officials encourage everyone who needs assistance to participate.
