FRAMINGHAM, MA - With school out, some kids are left wondering what to do for lunch.

In cooperation with the USDA Summer Food Service Program, The United Way of Tri-County will be providing free lunches to children throughout summer vacation.

Starting on Monday, July 1st, lunch will be served at Pearl Street Cupboard and Cafe from 11:30 to 12:30. The program will be available Monday through Friday until August 23rd.  Any child that is age 18 or younger is welcome to participate in the program. It is not necessary to pre-register, and there is no income requirement.

"In some Framingham schools we have over half of the children receiving free and reduced lunch during the school year. But now that students are out of school, they still need well-balanced meals. Our Pearl Street Cupboard and Café is looking forward to our first year as an open summer lunch program that will keep children’s bellies full," said Jen Maseda, Senior Vice President, United Way of Tri-County.

Pearl Street Cupboard and Café is located at 10 Pearl Street, Framingham, MA 01702.

Pearl Street Cupboard's mission is to provide hunger relief, improve the quality of life, and connect families and neighbors in need to essential services in our community. Their goal is to reduce levels of food insecurity, while strengthening the connections between people and available resources.
