CPS Expands Safe Haven, Feeding Program Sites Across the City for Summer

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) announced the expansion of popular free summer access programs provided to students to bridge one school year to the next and promote a safe and healthy summer. Both Safe Haven and citywide summer feeding programs, including CPS’ expanded LunchStop program, will expand this summer to ensure that families in every part of the city have access to nutritious meals and enrichment programs during the summer.

The Safe Haven program will expand to 110 sites across the city, offering free programs that help keep school-aged children off the streets and engaged in educational activities throughout the summer. The program runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, between June 30 and August 8th.

Each of the 110 locations will provide students free breakfast and lunch through CPS’s partnership with New Life Ministries. For a list of Safe Haven locations and contact information, please visit: www.cps.edu/SafeHaven. With the expansion of both summer feeding sites inside of schools and LunchStop carts outside of schools this year, children across the city will have access to free meals at more than 300 sites.
