Vacaville Unified School District summer lunch program underway – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

School is out, but, in several of Vacaville’s lower income neighborhoods, one regular part of many students’ days continues: a free, nutritious lunch.

In its third year, Vacaville Unified’s summer lunch program, formally called Seamless Summer Feeding, got underway this week and will continue to Aug. 1, two weeks before classes resume.

“We just had to do it,” said Theresa Stout, director of child nutrition for the 12,300-student district.

From 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. weekdays, trucks and volunteers take bagged lunches to 15 neighborhood sites, from Elm School and Buena Vista Apartments in the central and southern sectors of the city to Country High and the Bennett Hill Apartments in the north. The program serves children, infants to 18 years. No one in those age groups is turned away.
