OCPS Summer Food Program

Due to financial and social impact of COVID-19, Orange County doubles meal distribution, adds new safety precautions; see all Apopka locations

From Orange County Public Schools

In response to the ongoing financial and social impact of COVID-19 in Central Florida, Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) is expanding its Summer Meals program to increase access to fresh, balanced meals for students while schools are closed.

Through the Summer Meals program, students and parents can exchange USDA-issued waivers for prepared breakfasts and lunches at select schools, libraries and community centers in Orange County. To keep pace with rising need for food assistance, OCPS has doubled its distribution compared to 2019. As of June, the program had distributed more than one million meals!

“For every person at OCPS, the well-being and safety of our students is paramount,” says Lora Gilbert, Sr. Director, Food & Nutrition Services. “We’re committed to keeping kids healthy, not only by ensuring they can access fresh produce and nutritious meals throughout the summer, but also by doing our part to help curb the spread of COVID-19.”

Meals are prepared off-site and delivered to distribution locations to reduce contact between staff. Using drive-through lanes, students and parents can pick up multiple packaged meals to be reheated and enjoyed at home.

Distribution sites are open Monday through Thursday. On Thursday, students can also pick up additional meals for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. To find a location near you, visit www.OCPS.net
