Several school districts and other feeding organizations are gearing up for free summer feeding activities for youth 18 and under. Visiting these sites to receive prepared meals will be a huge form of support for families in need who have children in their household. Using these sites also helps those families that can benefit from this food resource from becoming heavily reliant on food bank resources during the summer, thereby allowing more food bank resources to be available for sharing with families that do not have the summer feeding safety net in place for them.
There are several ways to become informed about summer feeding sites near you as well as their days and hours of service. Families can learn of summer feeding sites near them by texting the word FOOD to 877-877, visiting summerfood.org for an interactive map, or calling 2-1-1.
