The Portland Public Schools and Opportunity Alliance will be operating summer meal sites across the city of Portland this summer. Meals and times will be posted at sites and will be distributed prior to the end of school. Most sites will begin operations on June 26 and continue thru mid- August.

All children 18 years and younger may receive a meal free of charge and it will be the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability at any of these locations.

A Summer Success Picnic will kick off the summer at Deering Oaks Park on Thursday, July 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (with a rain date of Friday, July 14). All are invited to attend the event, which will incorporate friends, fun and food!

To get more information about sites and times, families may dial 2-1-1. To view an online interactive map of meal sites, go the Portland Public Schools website – www.portlandschools.org – and click on the summer programs notice on the front page. You can also click HERE.
