Hunger Doesn’t take a Vacation.

If your children eat school meals for free or at a reduced price during the school year, a free meal program is also available during the summer. Summer Meals provide free, nutritious snacks and meals to children ages eighteen and younger. Check this list to find a site near you.

According to a recent national survey of low-income families, 43% state it’s harder to make ends meet in the summer months. Families spending more on food say that on average, their grocery bills are about $300 higher every month that kids are out of school. More than 21 million kids in the U.S. rely on free and reduced-price school lunches for their nutritional needs during the school year, yet fewer than 3 million children participate in a summer meal program.
