To help ensure that Florida children have access to wholesome meals during summer break, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services partners with schools and organizations to provide free meals to kids and teens from low-income areas.

The Summer BreakSpot Program provides meals at no cost to children 18 and under, while schools are closed for the summer. Last summer, more than 4,000 sites helped serve nearly 15 million meals to children across Florida.

  • West Florida Library, 7991 N. Century Blvd, Century
  • Camp Fire Century Youth Learning Center, 6031 Industrial, Century
  • West Florida Library, 6450 Highway 95A N STE A, Molino

Meals are available on a first come, first served basis. Acceptance and participation are the same for all children. Summer BreakSpot is part of the National Summer Food Service Program, a federally-funded program operated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

    Still nothing for Beulah’s children. Why is it that Beulah is growing with houses
    But has nothing to
    Offer our children. A bus would be nice then summer jobs could become a possibility so they would have a way. It’s so sad how no one ever thinks about the people of Beulah.
