Summer should be a stress-free time full of food, friends and fun. Free summer meals can help! Any child or teen age 18 and under can get free healthy meals at safe locations across the area.
Many meals sites also offer learning and recreational activities so kids can stay active and spend time with friends. Free summer meals can also help families save money.
Go to www.summerfood.usda.gov, text MEALPA to 877-877, or dial 2-1-1 to learn more and to find a site near you. Summer meals programs are funded by the USDA.
