The Seamless Summer Program allows school districts to ensure that students in a school district are fed during the summer months when school is not in session.  As the 2017-2018 school year ended, there were approximately 1,781 students, or 35%, in the District who qualified for the National Free/Reduced Price Meal Program.  The Seamless Summer Program was open to any and all individuals 18 years old and younger.  
The District provided a breakfast and lunch program to the students who attended the District's summer school program.  
Working in concert with various community entities, such as the Second Harvest Food Bank, the District served lunch to the community members who qualified.
The Multi-Use Room at Crittenden Middle School provided breakfast for the Summer School students, and then opened to provide the Seamless Summer Program to all for lunch.  
The District provided meals to both the Parks and Recreation Department and the Mountain View Police Department summer programs to serve meals at various locations.
The District served lunch at three sites in Mountain View, co-sponsored by the Second Harvest Food Bank:  Latham Housing Complex, Rengstorff Park, and Castro Park.
Staff will present a summary of the summer program.
