Upward Bound sponsors summer food service program

June 14, 2013

The CSU 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 2013 Upward Bound Summer Program.

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 CSU Dining Services Center – Parmelee/Corbett Hall as follows:
