Summer meals information – 2018

When school’s out, power up for summer fun!

Summer meals are free, healthy meals for kids and teens served at favorite summertime places when the school year is over. Anyone age 18 and under can come when breakfast, lunch, and/or snacks are served. There is no sign-up or paperwork, and adults are welcome to bring their own meals and eat with their kids. Many places that offer summer meals also have fun, enriching activities!
