Georgia First Lady Sandra Deal to Visit Roswell’s Waller Park

Roswell, Ga. (July 22, 2014)—On July 29, Georgia’s First Lady, Sandra Deal, will visit the City of Roswell’s Waller Park Recreation Center to help bring attention to the state’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). The SFSP ensures that low-income children have access to nutritious meals when school is not in session.

 

Deal will be arriving at 8:00 a.m. to have breakfast with children attending Waller Park Day Camp. She also plans to read a story to the children and take a brief tour of the facility.

 

Waller Park Recreation Center is one of the more than 1500 locations across the state that participates in the SFSP. When school is out and the meals served as a part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are not available, low-income children will often miss wholesome meals due to families' limited budgets or other circumstances. The SFSP fills this gap, and parents benefit from some help in stretching their food dollars and by knowing that their children are receiving healthy meals in a supportive environment. The program is administered by Bright from the Start, with federal funding from the United States Department of Agriculture.

 

Waller Park Recreation Center is located at 250 Oak Street in Roswell. The Center is part of the City of Roswell’s award-winning Recreation and Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department, which provides quality, comprehensive recreational and cultural opportunities, parks, and facilities to the Roswell community.
