Seashore Family Literacy in Waldport is dishing up free meals and summer camp fun. Since 1993, Seashore has provided free meals as part of a federally funded Summer Food Service Program. The program runs June 20 through August 27, 2012. Breakfast at 8:30 – 9am; Lunch at 12 – 12:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Free breakfast is served every Saturday from 9:30 – 10am.
Meals are served at the Waldport Community Learning Center, 265 Bay St. (located along Highway 34). The USDA-based program has strict requirements to ensure meals contain proper nutritional balance. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
Feeding the need
Oregon has higher than national average rates for hunger and food insecurity, according to an Oregon Food Bank report. Over half of Lincoln County students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and over 80 percent of Waldport’s grade school students are considered economically disadvantaged. About 400 students in the district are considered homeless (defined as living with relatives or friends, awaiting foster care, or living in an emergency shelter, motel, campground, car or park).
