Free Summer Meals for Kids - Capital Area Food Bank
Skip to main content

Summer break can be a hungry time for kids who depend on school meals, but it doesn’t have to be.

Summer meals service has ended for the season, but we aren’t done providing meals for children.

Working to End Summer Hunger

Too many children across the DC region are at risk of hunger, and for some, school may provide the only nutritious meals they receive on a given day. When summer break starts, kids lose that critical lifeline, making it harder for them to continue learning and growing. 

That’s why the Capital Area Food Bank supports sites throughout our community where all children can get free, nutritious meals all summer long.

This summer, we expect to provide 68,000 total breakfasts, lunches, suppers and snacks across our meal sites! 

Every child deserves a healthy, happy and hunger-free summer.
