Summer Food Service Program to assist six counties

(May 11, 2016) - The University of North Georgia is participating in the Summer Food Service Program. UNG's Human Services and Delivery Administration (HSDA) program will help provide meals to all children without charge. The program will serve hundreds of meals across north Georgia to children in need, helping fill the gap left by school meals, which children do not get during the summer.

UNG's HSDA program is accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Services Education and is the only nationally-accredited bachelor's-level human services program in Georgia. This accreditation means that in their upper-level courses, UNG students complete 200 hours of field experience, making them eligible to sit for the credentialing exam immediately after graduation.

Acceptance and participation requirements for the Summer Food Service Program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. The program is offered through Bright from the Start, which is administrated through the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
