Free summer meals for eligible children

For some children and teens, summer can mean an unwanted vacation from the regular meals they received at school. Fortunately, children in Santa Clara County, ages 18 and younger, can receive free meals during the summer at multiple locations.

Various programs are in place throughout the county to help children, who rely on free or reduced-price school meals, to receive meals when school is out.

Two Campbell Union School District schools will serve meals beginning June 26 and ending July 14.

  • Rosemary Elementary School, located at 401 W. Hamilton Ave., will serve a lunch/brunch from 12:30 to 1 p.m. M
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary, located at 1800 Fruitdale Ave., will serve brunch from 10:30 to 11 a.m.

Children in Campbell also can go to:

  • Del Mar High School will serve free meals during the summer to anyone under age 18. Breakfast is from 9:10 to 9:20 a.m. and lunch from 11:00-11:10 a.m. There will be no meals served July 3-4.
  • The Health Trust, 2105 Bascom Ave., and
  • The Jewish Family Service of Silicon Valley, 14855 Oka Road Suite 202 in Los Gatos.

There are many more locations in Santa Clara County. Families can find a meal site in their area through web searches for USDA Summer Food and the Hunger Hotline, or by phoning the National Hunger Hotline at: 1-866-3HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) or 1-877-8HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273).

The Castlemont Home and School Club would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this year’s Under the Sea Jog-A-Thon possible!  The event was a great success and we hope that everyone had a good time.  Without the donations and volunteers, and of course all the children's participation, it would not have been possible.  Also, if you have any late pledges please don't forget to turn them in.

Thank you

A huge thank you goes out to Andreea Singh, Rachelle Licon, and Laurie Saenz for their dedication and service to the Castlemont Community!  These awesome ladies have volunteered countless hours at Castlemont during their children’s/grandchildren’s tenure here.  They could always be found making copies for staff members, working in the library, orchestrating Fall Family Festivals, acting as Treasurer, overseeing fundraisers, book fairs, and many other opportunities whenever they arose.  They have been instrumental in the success of our Home and School Club which provides funding for field trips, assemblies, and many other activities.   The Castlemont Community will be forever grateful.  You will be greatly missed!
