June 11, 2009

The Colorado State University Upward Bound Program announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program. Free meals will be provided to children who are eligible and enrolled in the 2009 Upward Bound Summer Program.


Upward Bound Program

(To be eligible to receive free meals at a residential or non-residential camp, children must meet the income guidelines for reduced-price meals in the National School Lunch Program. The income guidelines for reduced-price meals by family size are listed below.)

Children who are part of households that receive food stamps or benefits under the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) are automatically eligible to receive free meals. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all 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 Corbett Hall and times are as follows:

Breakfast: (Sunday – Friday) 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.

Lunch: (Sunday – Friday) 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
