Glendale PTA: GUSD, city to provide free lunches for children

Classes in the Glendale Unified School District are dismissed for the summer, with lessons resuming on Aug. 10. During this time, summer fun is the focus for most students, with summer school classes scheduled in for others.

Good nutrition, however, should not take a back seat while classes are dark, which is why the Glendale Unified School District’s nutrition services department, in partnership with the city of Glendale, is once again providing free lunches for all children under the age of 18.

Lunch participants do not need to be students of the Glendale Unified School District. These free, nutritious lunches are being served to the general public at the following seven locations:

Until July 31, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except July 3) at Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard St., and Pacific Park, 501 S. Pacific Ave.


Monday through Friday until July 10 (except July 3) at Roosevelt Middle School, 11:15 to 11:45 a.m., 222 E. Acacia Ave.; Toll Middle School, 10:45 to 11:15 a.m., 700 Glenwood Road; Wilson Middle School, 10:45 to 11:15 a.m., 1221 Monterey Road; Glendale High School, 11 to 11:30 a.m., 1440 E. Broadway; and Hoover High School, 11 to 11:30 a.m., 651 Glenwood Road. Free lunches are also being offered to summer school students enrolled in classes at these five sites.

Food must be eaten on the premises. For more information, call (818) 552-2677 or email Jennifer Chin Gonzales, director, at
