April 13th, City Council Meeting
Motion to Award 2017 Summer Lunch Program to the Savannah-Chatham Board of Education in the amount of $323,000.00. (Event No. 5073)

Recommend approval to renew an annual contract to provide meals for the Summer Lunch Program from the Savannah-Chatham Board of Education in the amount of $3.40 per lunch for a total of $323,000.00. The program is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The City of Savannah Parks and Recreation Services Department will operate the lunch program, and the Savannah-Chatham Board of Education will provide the lunches.

This is a sole source because federal guidelines mandate that local school nutrition services be used to provide this service, where feasible. The summer lunch program is administered state-wide through Bright From the Start and the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. This program provides children enrolled in the summer recreation program a well-balanced lunch during the summer months. The program runs from May 30 - July 21, 2017, and will serve an estimated 95,000 meals.
