Free Summer Meals for Children 18 and Under

Summer Food Service Program

Did you know that only 15% of kids who rely on free and reduced-priced lunches continue to access meal programs in summer months? That means over 250,000 kids are missing meals and not receiving the nutrition they need.  To fill this gap, Second Harvest Heartland is once again working to connect kids with meals this summer.

The Summer Food Service Program provides free meals to children 18 and under to fill this gap.
