To help combat childhood hunger during the summer month when school is out of session, and to ensure that children in our local communities have access to healthy, nutritious meals during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, CRT is proud to participate in the federally funded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) once again this summer (now til mid-August).
Under the SFSP, nutritious meals (including Breakfast and/or Lunch, and even Supper), are provided free of charge to children 18 years of age and under at 11 locations in Hartford, East Hartford, Enfield and Glastonbury; and at one closed site in Manchester that requires pre-registration to participate.
Each weekday, CRT will deliver up to 1,000 meals for children per day.
This year, to accommodate social-distancing requirements, and to help ensure the safety of both the children and families using this program, as well as the health and safety of the CRT personnel delivering the meals, the SFSP will become a “grab-and-go” service, so meals can be picked up and enjoyed at home.
The list below highlights where meals are available in Hartford and neighboring towns, as well as dates for the program and times meals will be served.
