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.
