The Jacksonville Children’s Commission is the largest local sponsor of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Summer Food Service Program, Summer BreakSpot, which provides nutritious snacks and lunches to children 18 and under during the summer months. Children do not need to be enrolled in camps or activities at the program sites to receive a meal; they just need to show up during mealtime.
This summer, the Jacksonville Children’s Commission will serve more than 12,000 nutritious snacks and meals each day, at nearly 190 sites, including apartment complexes, churches, early learning centers, non-public schools, public libraries, city parks, swimming pools, one hospital and multiple summer camps. A 'Free Lunch Served Here' banner is posted at each site with the meal times indicated. Each year, more than 12,000 Duval County children receive nutritious snacks and lunches at no cost to parents through the Summer BreakSpot program.
To apply to become a BreakSpot serving site this summer (2014), send a completed 2014 Summer Food Service Program site application to the Jacksonville Children's Commission at the address below.
