Free summer meals for children

By Kendra Rowe Salas June 28, 2010

It’s summertime, and children are out of school. As fun as summer break can be, it leaves many children who rely on school breakfast and lunch programs at greater risk of hunger. We need to get the word out about free meals available this summer. Many sites in our community are already running the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), a program of the USDA, providing breakfast, lunch, and supper to children free of charge.

How can you help? Please pass on this important information!

To find free meals, visit the following websites or call the numbers listed below:

Washington, D.C.
311 or 202-737-4404


1-800-448-USDA (1-800-448-8732)

To find out more about SFSP, visit the USDA’s website.

Please use this flyer to pass along the message. Help children in our community have a fun, hunger-free summer vacation.
