ASHLAND, Ohio – The Salvation Army Kroc Center in Ashland is delighted to announce that it will operate its Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) this summer with the support of the United States Department of Agriculture. This will be the Kroc Center’s 14th consecutive year serving as an SFSP site and assisting families whose children receive free or reduced-price lunch in school during the summer. The program is open to all families in Ashland County.
“We are so happy to have the kids be able to eat together again this year and mid-summer they will be able to also enjoy the opening of the New Spray Park,” said Jen Washock, Director of Social Services.
The Kroc’s Summer Food Service Program begins June 12 and operates until August 11. It is open on weekdays from 12:15pm to 12:45 p.m. to children ages 1 to 18. No registration is required. Each week brings different themes for kids to engage in throughout the summer in conjunction with the meals. Meals will be served at the picnic pavilion located behind the building. Guests may enter through the gate in the West parking lot.
In addition to the SFSP program, and as during the rest of the year, the Kroc Center will continue to provide congregate community meals from 11 to 11:30 a.m., as well as operating our food pantry each weekday.
