Free summer lunch at 44 sites
Placeholder Image

Manteca Unified is offering free Nutrition Education Summer Meals for children ages 2 to 18 at 44 locations in Manteca, Lathrop, Weston Ranch and French Camp.
The program that started earlier this month runs Monday through Friday until July 28. There is no meal service on July 3 or July 4.
There are no eligibility requirements or identification needed. The only restriction is food must be consumed at the lunch site.
Typically the sack lunch consists of a sandwich, stone fruit, vegetables and milk.
There will be BBQ events at various park sites during the next five weeks. The BBQ includes a 45-minute event that will include cook demonstrations, games, and community information such as police K9 presentations.
All meals are delivered by district personnel driving distinctive school district vehicles with Manteca USD-Nutrition Education logo green lettering and an orange carrot on the side.
