Since the summer of 2016, Painesville City Local Schools’ Nutrition Services Department has participated in a Mobile Summer Food Service Program: a food truck also known as “The Lunch Box” that provides meals to all children ages 18 and under at no cost.
Meals are provided Monday through Friday during the summer months at the sites and times as follows:
|Harvey High School||11:00-11:15AM|
|Chestnut Elementary (back lot)||11:30-11:45AM|
|State Street Park||12:30-1:00PM|
|Elm Street Elementary (back lot)||1:15-1:30PM|
*Locations subject to change.
In addition to The Lunch Box, the PCLS Curriculum Department sponsors a summer book swap program, also known as “The PCLS Book Box.” The Book Box follows The Lunch Box each Tuesday and Thursday to all locations stated above (with the exception of Harvey.) All students and parents may take home books to enjoy and swap back for more.
The Book Box partners with the Morley Library so students can earn incentives for their summer program. PCLS teachers drive The Book Box to connect with all students and families within the Painesville community. The YMCA and the Lake County Health District have also joined The Lunch Box on certain days of the week to talk to students and families about healthy food choices and how to stay active.
What is SFSP?
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.

Meals are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
