With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. With this thought in mind, the Peekskill City School District has committed to providing free meals to children during the summer. Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Peekskill Schools, to provide free meals to children when school is out for summer vacation. This year, meals will be served Monday through Thursday at Peekskill High School, Dunbar Heights and the Kiley Youth Center from July 5 through August 15, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Meals will also be served at Hillcrest Elementary School and the Peekskill Youth Bureau for children attending those programs ONLY. Please note that Hillcrest and the Youth Bureau are not open to the public for this program. Click on the headline above to learn more.
