Staff Report

The Summer Food Service Program of the Community Action Commission of Santa Barbara County (CAC) is providing a nutritious daily lunch, and at some sites breakfast, for area children and youth each weekday through Aug. 10.

Seven sites are open, with the only requirement being that those who receive the free meal be under 18 years old.

The program provides low-income youngsters with nutritious meals at no charge until they begin school again in the fall.

CAC anticipates serving more than 1,000 meals daily through the program, which is in its 19th year.

For information call Gary Lynd, nutrition services director, at 805-683-4458 or email him at
