DELAND – School Way Café, a department of Volusia County Schools, will provide meals to children during the summer at no charge through the USDA Summer Food Service Program and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Summer Food Service will operate June 14 to July 29.

Students attending VCS summer academic programs in-person will receive their breakfast and lunch meals at no charge at the school they are attending.
