About Fresno EOC Food Services
Fresno EOC Food Services established operations in 1965. At its inception, Food Services served lunches to Head Start children and later added the National Meals on Wheels Program in 1972. In the beginning, meals were prepared in satellite kitchens within the City of Fresno, but by October of 1985, the vision of constructing a central kitchen was realized and the state-of-art Food Preparation Center (FPC) was opened. Food Services served 2,000 meals a day when the FPC opened and has grown to over 7,000 meals daily today.
Meals for Kids
Summer Food Service Program serving kids when school is not in session
During these difficult economic times, the only healthy meal a disadvantaged youth may consume is a free/reduced-price meal offered at school during the academic year. During summer break, Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC) Food Services provides free meals to kids ages 1-18.
According to California Food Policy Advocates 2019 data, 111,000 kids residing in Fresno County are food insecure. When school is not in session, these children miss out on access to nutritious meals that combat hunger, food insecurity, and help prevent obesity.
The meals – which are prepared and provided by Fresno EOC’s Food Services – meet strict United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and California Department of Education (CDE) nutrition guidelines and are comprised of two ounces of protein, two servings of fruits/vegetables, one serving of bread, and eight ounces of milk.
Fresno EOC began administering the Summer Food Service Program in 1991 with only two sites. Now the program distributes food to 100+ sites at urban and rural locations.
