The Virginia Department of Health is looking for organizations that can serve meals to children during the summer.

The department will reimburse groups that participate in the Summer Food Service Program for the meals and administrative costs. New participants are required to attend food service program training. The deadline for submitting an application is April 26.

The summer feeding program in Virginia serves meals at no charge to children in economically distressed areas and to mentally or physically disabled students over age 18.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture provides funding for the program.
