Free Summer Meals for Plateau Children Beginning in June

The South Cumberland Summer Meal Program will distribute meals from June 7 through July 30, 2021 at 17 sites located in Grundy, Marion, and Franklin Counties.

The University of the South in partnership with the South Cumberland Community Fund operates the South Cumberland Summer Meal Program. The Program is participating in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) administered by the Tennessee Department of Human Services under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). All plateau families with children are encouraged to participate in this free meal program.

All children 18 years and under are welcome to receive free meals. Children need not be present during meal distribution, which means parents or other adults may pick-up meals for children who are at home. At most locations, meals are distributed in grab-and-go fashion with as many as 10 meals per child distributed at one time.
