Press release from Alachua County Public Schools

ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – The Alachua County School Board Food & Nutrition Department announces the expansion of the Afterschool Meals Program (also referred to as the Supper Program) to include Metcalfe Elementary School (1250 NE 18th Avenue). The expansion to Metcalfe will take effect on September 5. 

The Afterschool Meals Program, which is part of the Child Care Food Program, is designed primarily to provide nutritious meals and/or snacks to children in participating afterschool programs. Meals and/or snacks are available at no charge to children attending the afterschool program, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

The addition of Metcalfe brings the total number of Alachua County sites offering the supper program to 37. A complete list of those sites is available at https://www.yourchoicefresh.com/menus/ under the heading ‘Our Supper Program Now Has 37 Locations!’

    • You must be completely lacking in kindness to be angry that hungry children in our community are fed. These are children who didn’t ask to be born into poverty and neglect.

      I hope you don’t call yourself a Christian.

    • Military is supposed to fight wars, but all service members are provided money for food separate from their regular pay. I don’t think that is welfare

        • Feeding children that are not able to work to provide for themselves who won’t be able to vote for years is not breeding sheep for votes. Kids fundamentally don’t think like that.

          Not everything is politics and indoctrination. I work in a school and some of my kids don’t have food and can’t just make their parents provide for them.
