Once again this summer, children can enjoy no-cost breakfasts and lunches provided by the Bensalem Township School District Food Services Department. The district is sponsoring the Summer Food Service Program, a federally funded nutrition program, open to all children ages 1-18 years.

No application is necessary. Meals are completely free, and all children are invited to come to the designated sites and enjoy nutritious meals. This program makes sure all children can eat healthy during the summer months. Children must eat on site. 

Meals will also be brought to children throughout Bensalem via the “Owls on the Go” Summer Lunch Bus.
