Summer Feeding Program

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out.  Community Action of South Mississippi has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of Jackson County to provide free meals to enrolled campers during the summer.

This summer, lunch will be served at the Andrew Johnson Unit, Jolly McCarty Unit and Moss Point Outreach Family Education Center beginning on Monday, June 5, 2023-Friday July 14,2023.  Lunch serving time is 11am-12pm to enrolled campers. There is no income requirements or registration. For more information, contact Tara Pederson, USDA Specialist at 228-762-3292.

Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Community Action of South Mississippi to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. 

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
