Free Summer Meals at Lyncourt School Free Summer Meals at Lyncourt School: Children in our community do not need to go hungry this summer. For many kids, summertime means food, friends, and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful and family food budgets have to be stretched even further. The US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program helps fill the hunger gap.     Free summer meals, funded by the USDA, are available to kids and teens ages 18 and younger at Lyncourt School in Syracuse, NY. This is an open site therefore free meals are available to all children ages 18 and under. This site does not require families to provide income information, registration, or other paperwork.
