School is out for summer, but the Colton Joint Unified School District will continue to provide youth 18 and under with free breakfast and lunch. The kick-off barbeque took place on Monday at Veterans Park with nearly 100 community members in attendance.

According to Central Kitchen Supervisor Corrina Chavez parents and guardians mistakenly assume that school campuses are closed, but that is not the case – all school sites are open for food service; please enter through the office.

Under the USDA, the Seamless Summer Food Service Program ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

Below is a list of locations, dates and meal times. Text FOOD (English) or COMIDA (Spanish) to 877-877 for meal times and locations.
