When the school year ends, summer meals begin!
Brown Bag Lunch

Wondering what’s in store for you and your children when you arrive at a summer meal site? Expect welcoming faces in a supervised setting, and a healthy, no-cost meal. During summer meal service, meals may be picked up and taken to go by a parent or child. Operations may vary; call your local site to get details on what to expect during meal service.

Did you think meals had to be served and consumed in a group setting at the site?
As of July 1, 2022, the recently enacted Keep Kids Fed Act provides new flexibilities that allow for grab-and-go meals and other accommodations that were in place during summer 2021.

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.

No form of identification is required, kids simply need to show up. Starting June 1st, visit a meal site near you!
