breakspot sites

Polk County’s school system is participating in a statewide Summer Breakspot program to offer free breakfasts and lunches to all children up to 18 years old. Nearly three dozen schools, businesses, and city recreation centers are taking part in the program in Lakeland, with more than 70 schools participating throughout Polk County.

The program began Monday and runs all summer. No application is necessary.

Polk County Public Schools officials said that, due to a change in government requirements, PCPS is not able to provide to-go meals. Food must be consumed on site.

Nearly three dozen schools, businesses and recreation centers are participating in a free food program for children in Lakeland.

Although the federal list of places offering meals lists IEP of Lakeland on Hardin Combee Road, officials with Lakeland Christian Preparatory School said they are not participating in a food plan for anyone other than their summer camp students.
