Madison School District Announces the Sponorship of Summer Food Service Program for Children


 
PRLog - Apr. 18, 2014 - PHOENIX -- Phoenix, AZ ̶ April 18, 2014 ̶ The Madison School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program for Children. Meals will be provided to all children, ages 18 and under, without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Meals will be provided at the Madison No. 1 Middle School Cafeteria located at 5525 N. 16th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85016. The site will be open Monday – Friday from May 27 through July 25, 2014, but will be closed on July 4. Breakfast is served from 8:00 a.m. – 8:50 a.m. Lunch is served from 12:00 p.m. – 12:55 p.m.

Madison School District's Food Service department is a model of nutritional excellence for students. This completely self-funding non-profit department keeps meal prices low, while providing meal options for children that are both attractive and healthy. Madison Food Service has also led the way in technological innovation, including early adoption of point-of-sale systems and in more recent years, the integration of smart temperature monitoring systems for the monitoring of food refrigeration and preparation
temperatures. “At Madison we recognize the direct connection between support services and classroom learning,” Lori Garvey, Assistant Superintendent of Support Services for Madison shared, “nowhere is this more evident than in the dedication of our Food Service staff to ensure that children are properly
nourished, so they can maximize their learning day. The Summer Food Service Program for Children is a natural extension of that dedication.”
