Volusia County’s Human Services Office will sponsor a Summer Food Service Program from May 18 through Aug. 14 to provide free breakfast and lunch meals for children ages 18 and under. The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculgure, provides nutritionally balanced meals during summer break when schools are closed.

Due to coronavirus concerns, the first two weeks of the program will feature grab-and-go meals. Parents are asked to pick up meals in the sites’ parking lots, where volunteers will give them breakfast and lunch for each child in the car. Meals will not be provided for children who are not in the car.

The following sites will offer grab-and-go meals from May 18 to 29. The sites will be closed May 25 for Memorial Day.

  • New Smyrna Housing Community Resource Center, 600 Greenlawn St. from 10 a.m. to noon
  • New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S. Dixie Freeway from 10 a.m. to noon
