Background Discussion
For the past thirty (30) years the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners has sponsored the Summer Food Service Program for children.   The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services receives program funds from the U. S. Department of Agriculture and reimburses the County for associated costs.   The 2013 Summer Food Service Program will operate from June 11, 2013 through August 9, 2013, providing for an estimated 1,300 nutritious pre-packaged lunches to children eighteen years old and younger at approximately thirty (30) low-income areas throughout the county.  Reimbursement is based on the number of lunches served (up to $3.4125 per lunch).
