INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –For some students of the Indianapolis Public School system, their summer has been a bit more enjoyable and stress free knowing that they can enjoy a breakfast and lunch each weekday provided by IPS.

Since mid-June,  Indianapolis Public Schools has been providing breakfast and lunch to district students at 29 locations (including schools) throughout the city during summer break.

Currently, thousands of students have participated in the program, with weekly meal totals averaging 2,526 for breakfast and 3,555 for lunch.

IPS has been able to offer meals to students at no cost throughout the school year, and has been able to continue that service even when school is not in session. Last summer with participation in the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program, they were able to provide more than 61,000 meals to students!

IPS will continue to serve breakfast and lunch at schools across the district through July 22.
