Union City celebrates the kick off of the Summer Meal Program



Today, Union City held a party to celebrate their summer meal program for the 33rd year. According to the city, the program will help ensure that no child goes hungry this summer.

The summer program is part of the National School Lunch Program and was designed so that the children who receive free, or reduced lunches during the school year, also have the same opportunity throughout the summer.

The program is fully funded by the USDA (United States Dept. of Agriculture), and allows any child under 18, who is a Union City resident, or visiting a resident, to receive breakfast and lunch at no cost.

The city has 14 sites where free meals can be obtained. For more information on the program visit www.ucnj.com
