Children need nutritious meals to learn, grow and thrive — even when school is out. With the Summer Meal Programs, children and teens ages 18 and younger, and enrolled students with disabilities up to 21 years old can continue to eat healthy throughout the summer at no cost at any participating meal site.
The acronyms in front of site names give you more information about the meals. Families are encouraged to contact the meal site directly for more information on meal service.
Assistance available in English and Spanish. Please call 877-TEX-MEAL (877-839-6325) for help.
