The Oxford School District announced Tuesday morning the return of its “Summer Meals” program—a program that offers free meals to children under the age of 18—and is set to begin in June.

The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), allowed the district to provided 17,345 meals to local children last summer.

Free breakfast and lunch are available to all kids ages 18 and younger—not just Oxford School District students. There are no residence or school requirements, no proof of income, and no application requirement is needed to receive free meals.

This summer, breakfast and lunch will be served every weekday from:

June 3 through July 19, 2019.
Breakfast: 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
Lunch: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The two sites that families, church groups, summer camps, and community organizations can easily access are:

Oxford Intermediate School Cafeteria
501 Martin Luther King, Jr., Drive
Oxford, MS 38655

Oxford Middle School Cafeteria
222 Bramlett Boulevard
Oxford, MS 38655

Adults may purchase meals at a very low cost also: breakfast is $1.75, and lunch is $3.75.

All meals served are healthy and follow the same U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrition guidelines the school districts follow during the regular school year. Oxford School District does not provide transportation to our meal site.
