Free summer meals for kids | Families
Summer is such a great time for kids to spread their wings and regroup for the next school year. It is, unfortunately a really difficult time for some families, trying to make ends meet.
During the school year, students are guaranteed a nutritious meal or 2, but summer doesn't have to mean kids go hungry. A federal nutrition program called “The Summer Meals Program” provides free meals and snacks.
All children and teenagers (18 and younger) are eligible for the programs, regardless of income, during the summer months. Sites are located in schools, recreation centers, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations and camps. The program began this week and ends in the fall, when school begins.
It's pretty much guaranteed you'll find a number of locations hosting The Summer Meals Program in your neighborhood.
