Community Action Agency Announces Sites
for the Summer Food Service Program

Frederick, MD – The Summer Food Service Program, operated locally by the Frederick Community Action Agency (FCAA), provides a lunchtime meal for lower-income children and youth that would qualify for free- or reduced-price meals through the public school system; pre-school age children can also be served through the program. Schools are closed for the summer and some children in Frederick would literally go without a lunchtime meal if not for the Summer Food Service Program. During the summer of 2011, the FCAA served over 18,000 meals to hungry children and youth at nine (9) different feeding sites throughout Frederick city. This summer FCAA staff will be serving meals at nine (9) sites (including the Boys and Girls Club of Frederick and PAL). We also branched out of Frederick city, and into Discovery in Walkersville. It is estimated that the program may serve as many as 20,000 meals over the course of the summer.

From June 11 through August 24, 2012, lunchtime meals will be served, Monday through Friday (except on July 4, 2012) at the locations listed below.


• Hill Street Park Pavilion on Hill Street – 12:30-1:30 p.m.
• Stonegate Park Pavilion on Andover Lane – 12:00p.m. -12:45 p.m.
• College Estates Park on Taney Avenue – 12:15 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
• PAL Center on Sagner Avenue – 12:00 to 12:30 p.m.
• Carver Community Center on Lee St. – 12:00 to 12:30 p.m.
• Carrollton Park on Center Street and Prospect – 12:00-12:45 p.m.
• Discovery (Walkersville) HOA Building – 11:30-12:30 p.m. ENDS AUGUST 17TH
• Amber Meadows Park on Amber Drive 12:30-1:00pm


The Summer Food Service Program is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but the USDA reimbursements do not cover the entire cost of operating and expanding the program. Monetary donations are accepted to help operate the Summer Food Service Program and contributions can be mailed to the FCAA at 100 South Market Street, Frederick, Maryland 21701. Donations are tax-deductible and checks should be made payable to the Friends for Neighborhood Progress, Inc. - the tax-exempt, non-profit corporation that co-sponsors the work of the FCAA. The FCAA is also sponsored by the City of Frederick, the Frederick County Government, and the United Way of Frederick County.

For more information about the Summer Food Service Program or any of the services offered by the Frederick Community Action Agency, please contact Mike Spurrier, Director at 301-600-1506 or Sarah McAleavy, Coordinator of Food and Nutrition Services at 301-600-6263.
