Summer Food Service Program

July 15, 2014

The UNI Classic Upward Bound Program participates in the State of Iowa Summer Food Service Program. What this program allows Upward Bound to do is to receive funds for meals served during the residential program at the University of Northern Iowa. This helps defray the cost of boarding our students during the summer enrichment program. By following meal requirements, our students are participating in this program for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their meals are checked for the proper menu items on each plate brought through by each student.

The following are the links to the website and the registration form to become connected. Please take a moment to complete the registration and become a member of the TRiO Alumni Association.

During these competitions, scholars from around the state of Iowa competed for the opportunity to make it to regional, national and world-wide competitions.
