SUMMIT, NJ - In light of the Summit Public Schools closure necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Summit School District has applied -- and been approved -- for the ability to operate temporarily under the Seamless Summer Option program (SSO) by the NJ Department of Agriculture.
The Seamless Summer Option (SSO) is a Federal meal program that encourages more School Food Authorities (SFAs) already participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) to provide meals during periods longer than 10 schooldays of closure.
All resident children under the age of 18 regardless of the school or eligibility in the Free/Reduced Program are now eligible for breakfast and lunch “grab-and-go” meals at District food pick-up locations, which include Summit High School and Jefferson Elementary School.
Distribution Times and Locations
Between the hours of 8 - 10 a.m.
Summit High School, 125 Kent Place Boulevard
Jefferson Elementary School, 110 Ashwood Avenue
Students may pick up meals from either location regardless of their home school
Guidelines for Pick Up
Any child under the age of 18 who comes to the food distribution sites will be provided with a grab-and-go breakfast and lunch.
Any adult who shows up will need to produce proof of residency (driver’s license, utility bill or lease document, etc.) and they must have a list of the child’s name(s) and age(s). Failure to provide the necessary documentation will prevent individuals from picking up meals.
