Kids Summer Meal Program

For the second year, the Seymour Oxford Food Bank will be distributing weekly summer meal bags from June 12 – August 21 to our clients with school-aged children.  During the school year, these children would receive free or reduced breakfasts and lunches at school. The food bank wants to help these families by packing bags with enough food to feed the children for 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches. Each week, the meal bags will contain different foods for a variety in their meals.

Below is a list of items we are collecting to fill these bags. Please consider donating an item or two towards these bags. We distributed 13 bags/week last year and there are 11 weeks this year which will total 143 bags for the summer. That’s a lot of food!

Feel free to contact the food bank at 203-888-7826 with any questions. Thank you for any help you can give.  Donations may be dropped off during the business hours of Monday – Thursday from 9am – 11am or may be left in the bins located at the door to the food bank.
