As many as
4,000 meals are served daily through Nashville’s Summer Food Service Program
On Wednesday, Nashville Mayor David Briley will roll up his sleeves and
help serve lunch to area youth at Hartman Park Community Center beginning at 12
noon on Wednesday (July 24).
Mayor Briley will
work along side the Metro Parks camp employees at Hartman as well as the Executive
Director of the Metropolitan Action Commission, Dr. Cynthia Croom.
Metro Action receives
funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to administer the Summer
Food Service Program (SFSP) which provides
breakfast and lunch meals to over 80 locations throughout Nashville when school
is out. SFSP is a national food program
which allows agencies like Metro Action provide meals to camps, churches and
other locations where at least 50% of the youth qualify for the free or reduce
meals when school is in session.
The Hartman Park
Community Center is one of the largest meal sites in Nashville in that approximately
100 youth are provided free breakfast and lunch meals each day.
