Providing Support for Your Business, Events & Networking!
Data suggest that 1 in 5 California children in need receive nutritiously adequate meals during the summer months through California’s Summer Meal Programs. These programs offer No-Cost meals to all children under the age of 18. Meal services include breakfast, lunch, snack, and supper. No Paperwork is required to participate—simply identify a Summer Meal site location and arrive during serving time to receive a free meal. Finding summer meal sites is easy:
TEXT: FOOD or COMIDA to 877-877
The CDPH Geographic Information System (GIS) site is now updated to include the confirmed Summer Meal sites to date; additional sites will be added when data are available. Once logged-on, search under the “Health, Nutrition, and Education” operation layer to locate sites!
Local agencies are encouraged to support local families by sharing resources that help them locate Summer Meal Sites in your area. The California Department of Education (CDE) can provide flyers and bookmarks to your agency to share with your community. Resources are available in English and Spanish.
