Summer Meals and Neepunee PÔhp8Ôk Camp Kicks Off on July 15 – August 30, 2019

The Mashpee Old Indian Meeting House Authority, Inc. is sponsoring the Summer Food Service Program, for the 30 tribal children enrolled in the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s Neepunee PÔhp8Ôk Camp. Fifty percent (50%) of enrolled children must meet the guidelines for free or reduced meals in the National School Lunch Program. The income guidelines for reduced-priced meals by family size are listed online in this edition of the Mittark. Children who are part of households that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, or benefits under the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) are automatically eligible to receive free meals.

Acceptance and participation requirements for the Program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Meals will be provided at the sites and times as follows:
