The Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh is participating in the Summer Food Service Program in Squirrel Hill and Monroeville to ensure children have access to nutritious meals and snacks when school is not in session, according to a press release.

The program is federally-funded and administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. It is open and available to children under 18, and will provide two meals on Tuesdays and three meals on Thursdays. Milk and afternoon snacks are also included.

Parents can pick up the meals, which are not to be consumed on site. To provide a COVID-safe environment, those picking up meals are required to wear masks and practice safe social distancing.

In Squirrel Hill, kosher meals, under the supervision of the Vaad Harabanim of Greater Pittsburgh, will be provided at the JCC from June 21-Aug. 20, 2021, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
