Helpful information about the free breakfast & lunch program that is provided by the Health Dept.(US Government)

BCC is an “open site” meaning neighborhood children (children not enrolled in our summer program) can come and eat meals if they wish. That number is very low, maybe 3-4 children the entire summer.

The U.S. Government provides the meals & makes the rules we must follow. Food must be eaten onsite, no food can leave the site, children ages 2-18 can eat the meals, sharing table rules, to name a few. Violation of the rules can result in the BCC having to pay for the meals.

The Belmont Community Center has NO SAY in what meals are served. BCC is simply a site that provides this service. We provide a monthly menu of what is to be served, which is available by the office. There are times when the menu doesn’t match what is brought to serve the children,this is a rare occurrence, but it can happen. WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER WHAT WE ARE PROVIDED.

All meals are delivered to us “ready to eat.” We will not warm up any food  brought to us by the Health Dept.

BCC staff must take a training class every year in order for us to serve the children the meals.

Your child is not required to eat the free breakfast or lunch. If they choose to not eat the free meals they will need to bring in their own breakfast/lunch on those days. If they bring in food that needs to be warmed up, we can do that for them.

The Belmont Community Center Summer Program is a licensed child care program providing a variety of quality experiences  within the child care setting. The morning is a constantly changing variety  of activities exploring a weekly theme. The afternoon includes games, crafts,  swimming and supervised free play as we re-create the old neighborhood play  group. Our goal is to provide organized, supervised activities that promote  positive interactions with peers and the development of physical, social  and creative skills in the participants.
