Adam Putnam Announces 'Summer BreakSpot' Free Meal Program
Agriculture Commission Adam Putnam introduced a new summer nutrition program called ‘Summer BreakSpot,” featuring Florida produce, for needy kids.
“More than 1.6 million students in Florida rely on free and reduced-price meals during the school year,” Putnam stated in a release on Tuesday.
“It’s critical that we continue to provide these children with access to healthy meals when school is not in session. By partnering with community organizations like recreation centers, churches and food banks, we can get the food in the hands of the children that need it most.”
The announcement was made at Nap Ford Community School in Orlando.
