Many cities across the country offer completely free summer meals to kids. Those families who depend upon free school breakfast and lunch during the school year need not worry about their kids going hungry just because school’s out. Free meals are handed out daily, in convenient city parks, pools, schools and other locations, to fill this exact need.
For instance, our community pool, the school down the road, the museum and 25 locations within a 5 mile radius of me all hand out completely free brown bag lunches to kids every day during the summer. (Do a check HERE to find locations near you!)
I have met with several moms at the community pool who come at a certain time of day specifically to take advantage of free lunches. You don’t have to be starving or homeless to benefit from these free meals, you just have to be needing a helping hand. If you’re struggling, don’t hesitate to take advantage of this program. Oftentimes I see the older man who hands lunches out at the park, put several bags back into his cooler when it’s time to leave.
If you know someone who could use a hand, pass on this information!
Nutritious free meals are available for children and teens 18 and younger at many locations throughout the nation throughout the summer while school is out of session. Use the mapping tool to find a site near you.
