Summer Food

The Urban Mission is committed to seeing that children receive a nutritious meal during the summer months while school is not in session.

The Urban Mission will administer meals to students locally as a second-year sponsor for the Ohio Department of Education, USDA Summer Food Service Program.

Meals will be served beginning June 5 – August 18; youth ages 1 – 18 can visit one of four area sites to receive a lunch meal. Individuals ages 19 through 21 with a mental or physical disability may also be eligible for free summer meals. The four sites are as follows:

Martin Luther King Center: 905 Market Street, Steubenville (meal time: 12:00 – 1:00)

Sacred Heart Center of Hope (Simpson United Methodist Church): 430 Slack Street, Steubenville (meal time: 12:00 – 1:00)

Murphy’s Field: 1700 Plum Street, Steubenville (meal time: 12:00 – 1:00)

Ridgewood Place: 601 Two Ridges Road, Wintersville (meal time: 12:00 – 1:00)

We are still seeking additional assistance from the community to cover the costs of the program to ensure that no child goes without a meal during the summer months. A gift of $10 will sponsor a week’s worth of meals for one child.

We are also in need of volunteers to organize site activities for each site. If you are interested in donating toward the program, volunteering or have questions, please contact Cynthia Lytle, Summer Food Program Director at 740.282.8010 or clytle@urbanmission.org. Donations can be sent to the Urban Mission “Summer Food Program”, 301 North 5th Street, Steubenville, OH 43952.
