Summer Meals for School-Aged Youth

SARATOGA COUNTY — CAPTAIN Community Human Services, a volunteer-driven organization, is continuing their commitment to provide nutritious meals to school-aged youth again this summer. CAPTAIN CHS and their partners are kicking off this year’s campaign on Tuesday, July 5th, at the Park Avenue Playground in Mechanicville. The Free Summer Meals program has been provided by CAPTAIN CHS since 1991; however, it wasn’t until United Way of the Greater Capital Region provided funding that allowed CAPTAIN CHS to service all of Saratoga County. In 2021, CAPTAIN CHS served over 19,000 meals to children throughout the county, a near 60% increase from pre-pandemic levels according to CAPTAIN’s Executive Director Andy Giplin. 

Managed by the NYS Department of Education, and under the guidance of the USDA, this year’s Free Summer Meals program will be provided to youth aged 18 and under in 19 different locations throughout Saratoga County. Open site locations include Cheryl’s Lodge, Corinth Elementary School, D&R Village, Park Avenue Playground in Mechanicville, Saratoga Village and the Schuylerville Public Library, among others. To find out more about locations, times and meals provided families can call 518-371-1185 or visit www.captaincares.org/summermeals.
