summerThe Summer Meals Program

Free summer meals

There are hundreds of locations across Minnesota, including schools, parks, and rec centers, that are offering complementary and nutritious snacks and meals to all children and teens 18 years old and younger!

With current COVID-19 health considerations, many meal sites are serving to go meals and allowing families to take them home. Many sites are also serving bundled meals to minimize exposure, and parents and caregivers are often allowed to pick up meals for kids who are not present.

Food and service varies by site, please contact individual sites with specific questions.
