If you are a parent who is worrying about how the kiddos are going to eat this summer when they are on summer break then here is an AWESOME program that you want to check out. The FREE Summer Meals in Your Community program offers nutritious free meals to children and teens 18 and younger at many locations throughout the nation throughout the summer while school is out of session. You can head on over here and use the easy to search box to find a location near you that is providing FREE meals.
Kids Nationwide get FREE Lunch during the summer
I personally love this, I love that there is a program to help those in need have a nutritious meal and that it is all over the country. I know that it is important to make sure the kiddos are fed and if you are on the free and reduced lunch program when your kids are in school that when they come home for the summer it can be a struggle on the budget.
To get the FREE Lunches there are no income requirements, ID, or registration in qualifying areas. The locations for the free lunches each day include recreation centers, churches, schools, public housing complexes and community organizations. These summer meals are made available by the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program and Seamless Summer Option.
Site information for 2017 will start becoming available in early May and new sites will be added throughout the summer so make sure you bookmark it so you can find places near you!
