USDA Summer Meals for Kids Site Finder

USDA works closely with states to ensure that children who receive free or reduced-price school meals can get the nutrition they need when schools are closed - whether during summer break or unexpected closures during the school year. Through USDA's summer meal programs, approved sites in communities across the country can serve meals to kids up to age 18 at no cost. Families can use this tool to find directions to nearby meal sites, as well as their hours of operation and contact information.The Summer Meals Site Finder has officially closed for the season now that schools are back in session. Check back in early May 2024 when the Site Finder will go live again for the 2024 summer period.

Families seeking food assistance for their children can also contact The USDA National Hunger Hotline operated by Hunger Free America

The hotline can be reached Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. E.T
