Cameron Upward Bound sponsors Summer Food Service Program

Cameron University's Upward Bound program will participate in the Summer Food Service Program, a program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), by providing meals at no charge to all eligible children. From May 26 - June 26, meals will be provided Monday through Friday in the Cameron University cafeteria, located in the Shepler Tower, at 2800 W. Gore, as follows: Breakfast: 7:45 - 8:15 a.m.; Lunch: 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.; and Supper: 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

To be eligible to receive free meals at a residential or nonresidential camp, children must meet the income guidelines for reduced priced meals in the National School Lunch Program. Income guidelines can be found at www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/Governance/notices/iegs/IEGs08-09.pdf .

Children who are part of households that receive food stamps, benefits under the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) are automatically eligible to receive free meals.

Acceptance and participation requirements for the Program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

Individuals who wish to file a complaint of discrimination should immediately contact: Director, Office of Civil Rights, USDA, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20250-9410; (800) 795-3272 or (202) 720-6382 (TTY). USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

CU's Upward Bound program provides participants opportunities to generate the skills and motivation necessary to complete their secondary education and to enroll in and complete a program of post-secondary study. The program currently serves students in Lawton and Geronimo
