Spiritual Side: Drive-Thru Chili-Dinner Fundraiser on Feb. 20 and 21

FOOD FOR MANY — Food drives like this one at First Presbyterian Church in DeLand from February, 2021, have been a common sight this past year. The opportunities listed below will be more chances for children to get full meals and full stomachs.

There’s good news for parents who are struggling to feed their children during summer vacation. 

Volusia County’s Human Services Office is rolling out its Summer Food Service Program, which provides free breakfast and lunch meals for children ages 18 and under through Aug. 13. The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provides nutritionally balanced meals during summer break when schools are closed.  

Children must be present to receive meals.

The following sites will participate in the Summer Food Service Program. Meals will be served Monday through Friday unless otherwise indicated.  

All sites will be closed on July 5 in observance of Independence Day.
