Free Summer Meal Programs
As Summer Vacation has begun, several children in our communities have lost their access to a free school meals. Often, we forget that millions of students depend on these school meals to properly nourish their bodies. In an effort to combat hunger, the California Department of Education has taken steps to address this concern among children in our disadvantaged communities. The Summer Meal Program ensure that children in our communities as well as their parents have the resources necessary to benefit from the free meal program offered to families.
The program is free of cost. To participate in the Summer Meal Program children must be under 18 years old. Some participating location may offer meals to adults that bring children to the meal service sites.
For more information on how your child can participate this year, please visit the California Department of Education website for the list of school meals.
For more local locations please check Free Summer Meals.
Let’s help ensure all children are properly nourished year around!
For more information on how to get involved please reach out to our District Office (714) 525-6515.
