Children in Borrego Springs and Julian will benefit from the Fuel for Summer campaign & Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), as Feeding America San Diego (FASD) announces distribution sites in the county.

The aim of the program is to provide critical support throughout the summer, ensuring children and families are getting the nutrition they need to live healthy and productive lives.

Funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), SFSP is administered by the California Department of Education (CDE) and sponsored by FASD. Free lunches and snacks are provided to children and teens during the summer months at eight locations throughout the county. FASD is one of the few non-profit SFSP sponsors in San Diego County that offers additional resources and financial support to meal service sites.

In 2014 in San Diego County, 59 percent, or more than 97,000 students, of those who received free and reduced-price meals during the school year did not receive food during the summer (CFPA, 2015 School's Out...Who Ate?). Through direct-to-client programs and our partner agencies, FASD works to meet this specific need throughout the region.

Borrego Springs Branch Library will participate in the program Tuesdays & Fridays from June 21 until Sept. 2. Lunch will be available from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM. Site Supervisor – Michael Voss

Julian Branch Library will participate in the program Mondays & Fridays from June 14 until Aug. 5. Breakfast will be available from 9.00 AM – 9.30 AM. Lunch will be available from 12.00 PM – 01.00 PM. Site Supervisor – Colleen Baker
