OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) – The Oshkosh Area School District (OASD) will once again be offering free meals to children through its Summer Food Service Program.

“This program fills a void created when school meals are not available,” said OASD Director of Food Services, Michele Stahmann. “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program.”

The OASD’s food program provides free meals for children 18 and under, as well as those who are older and fall under certain qualifications. It is funded by the U.S. Department of Public Instruction.

Providing nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable, is the Summer Food Service Program’s primary goal.

  • Jefferson Elementary and Oaklawn Elementary: June 13 – July 7 (Monday through Thursday; closed July 4)
    • Breakfast: 7:45 – 8:15 a.m. and Lunch: 11:15 a.m. – Noon
