Jax Afterschool Meals Program Begins Monday

The Jacksonville Children’s Commission is once again partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Florida Department of Health to offer kids in its city-sponsored afterschool programs a free nutritious snack and dinner before going home each day.

The meals, provided through the Child Care Food Program, will be offered to about 11,000 children at 58 locations throughout Jacksonville. Schools that qualify for the program must have a student population in which 50 percent or more qualify for free and reduced lunch.
