SARATOGA COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — To continue to help feed families during the ongoing pandemic, Captain Community Human Services is kicking off its free summer meals program Monday.

“This year, many of our sites, including the CAPTAIN CHS Outreach Center, Cheryl’s Lodge, have already been delivering school lunches to youth,” said Associate Executive Director Andy Gilpin. “The current crisis has hit families hard, and our kids even harder, so we’re excited to continue offering food and support throughout the summer.”

The program started in 1991 at the Community Outreach Center at Cheryl’s Lodge. It eventually gre and expanded to serve all of Saratoga County.

“When the crisis started, one of our first and foremost goals at CAPTAIN CHS was to figure out how we ensure every local family in need has daily access to nutritious food,” continued Gilpin. “We kept our food pantry operating, expanded our capacity, and began distribution at Cheryl’s Lodge in Halfmoon Heights. There, we’ve been delivering over 800 school meals each week, and providing opportunities for pick-up and drop-off for their families.”

To provide a safe experience for all, the meals being offered are grab and go instead of the communal meal experience offered in the past.

“Keeping our youth healthy, connected, and ready for the next academic year is one of our key goals, especially for 2020,” noted Gilpin.

The Free Summer Meals will be provided to children ages 18 and younger at 19 different locations in Saratoga County starting June 29 until September 4.
