A program to make sure children have access to healthy meals during summer break is coming to three Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation locations.
The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on May 7 approved a memorandum of understanding with the nonprofit Georgia Nutritional Services, Inc. to serve as the sponsor for the federal Summer Food Service Program at no cost to the County.
As the sponsor, GNSI will secure Meals for Kids to serve as the food vendor for the program. The meals program will be offered at Best Friend Park Gym, 6224 Jimmy Carter Blvd. in Norcross; Lilburn Activity Building, 788 Hillcrest Road in Lilburn; and Rhodes Jordan Park, 100 East Crogan St. in Lawrenceville.
District 4 Commissioner Marlene Fosque said as an added benefit, all three parks are in close proximity to a transit bus stop for easier access by participants. "I am proud of Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation for expanding its healthy lifestyle programming to include providing nutritious, accessible meals for children," said Fosque.
