Free Summer Food Program Coming to Jarvis Campus

Jarvis Christian College and the East Texas Food Bank have partnered to offer a healthy and fun

summer to children through the Summer Food Program. The program which provides free

breakfast and lunch to children ages 1 through 18, starts on June 10 and ends on August 23, 2013.

Monday through Friday at 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., trained staff will serve free breakfast and lunch to

program participants from The Grill inside the Ron Hayes Building on the Jarvis campus.

The Summer Food Program does not offer activities, but Cory Gipson, Director of Student

Activities, says that Jarvis’ Olympic-sized pool and weight room will be open to participants looking

for more. Lifeguards will be present at the pool and there is a small fee for use of the swimming

pool and weight room. For more information call 903-730-4890, Ext. 2146.

Jarvis Christian College is a historically Black liberal arts, baccalaureate, degree-granting institution

affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The mission of the College is to prepare

students intellectually, socially, spiritually, and personally to pursue professional and graduate studies

and productive careers, and to function effectively in a global and technological society.
