Eureka City Schools to Offer Meals All Summer in Effort to Assist with Youth Food Insecurities
May 31, 2023 - Eureka, CA - Eureka City Schools (ECS) is pleased to announce our Summer Community Meals program will continue in 2023. 

Starting June 26, 2023 and spanning through August 11, 2023, children 18 years of age and younger can access free nutritious meals from four designated school sites, Monday through Friday. School sites participating in the Community Meals Program are Alice Birney Elementary - the ECS Primary Community Meals site, Washington Elementary, Zane Middle School, and Eureka High School.

Eureka City Schools encourages families and approved programs to access meals at the Primary Community Meals site - Alice Birney. As part of a new California Pilot program, meals are not required to be consumed on-site, if accessed from the Primary Community Meals site. Meals are available at Alice Birney from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. 

Washington, Zane and Eureka High will also have access from 6/26/23 to 8/11/23. At these locations meals must be consumed on-site. Meals will be available from 12:00 PM to 12:30 PM  at Zane and EHS, and 12:30 PM to 1:00 PM at Washington. These sites have a short time window because they are either directly before or after the site’s designated Summer School lunch period. 

The ECS Summer Community Meals Program provides an opportunity to continue a child's physical and social development while providing nutritious meals during vacation periods from school. Eureka City Schools takes food insecurity very seriously and understands how much good nutrition is essential for not only learning in school but for a child’s overall growth and development. Having consistent access to healthy food can stabilize energy, promote strong bones and teeth, improve mental health, help to maintain a healthy weight, prevent chronic diseases, and even reduce anxiety and give a child confidence. 

Our participation in this federally-funded program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture helps children stay connected to their community and return to school ready to learn.

Eureka City Schools is an equal opportunity provider. If you have any questions, please contact Food Services Director Kevin Ralston at (707) 441-2501. The Community Meals Menu and other Food Services information is posted at
