Placeholder Image
MONROE - Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Monroe school district is offering free breakfast and lunch to all children under 18 in the district throughout June and July. The district's summer food service program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. The program is designed to help fill a void created when school lunches are not available and help parents meet the nutritional needs of their children, according to a district news release.
