Summer nutrition is important

Susan Gunnell - Superintendent, Huber Heights City Schools

At the April 2017 Board of Education meeting, Board members approved a request from the Huber Heights City Schools Nutrition Services Department to again participate in the federally funded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) approved by the Ohio Department of Education. The SFSP reimburses providers who serve free healthy meals to children and teens during the summer months when school is not in session.

Each week, Monday through Friday, beginning Tuesday, May 30 thru Friday, July 28, the Huber Heights City Schools’ Nutrition Services Department will provide free breakfast and lunch to all children ages 1 to 18 years of age. Both meals will be served at Wright Brothers’ Elementary School cafeteria, 5758 Harshmanville Road. Breakfast hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and lunch hours are from 12:00 noon to 12:30 p.m. Meals will be provided to all children without charge. Signs will be posted at the cafeteria door. If you would like additional information, please call the Nutrition Services office at 937-237-6398.

Good nutrition is crucial to the growth and development of children and the summertime offers challenges for many of our families because school lunch and breakfast programs are not available leaving many children without the nutritious meals they need. We want our community’s children to have a place to go that offers healthy and nutritious meals free of cost during the summer months. As always, if you have questions about our schools, please contact me at the Administrative Offices (237-6300) or through e-mail at
