SUN Meals Summer Food Program in ASD

SUN Summer Nutrition Programs for Kids


On a typical school day in the Auburn School District, over 6,000 students participate in the school breakfast program and over 10,000 students participate in the school lunch program. When school is out for the summer, kids lose access to these healthy meals, but they still need nutritious food to grow healthy and strong.

Auburn School District continues to offer summer nutrition options to help our children reach their full potential. The USDA Summer Food Service Program has been re-branded: SUN Summer Nutrition Programs for Kids. Three options are available to support our kids and families.
