Apply by 3/31: Kids Summer Meals Meal Vendors & Meal Sites Recruitment

2021 Kids Summer Meals service runs June 14 — August 20

Kids Summer Meals, also known as the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), is a USDA federally funded resource which offers free nutritious meals to children 2-18 typically during summer months. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, USDA approved waivers to activate Summer Food Service Program outside of traditional program dates so children can have access to free meals even when schools close for holiday breaks. The Food Bank will offer support across its 34-county service area to new and returning sites for Kids Summer Meals sponsorship.

Recruiting Kids Meals Sites:
Youth center, apartment complex, or other community group? If you are an organization, or know of an organization, that would like to provide free meal service for children this summer, please submit a Kids Summer Meals Site Application to request meal sponsorship.

Recruiting Meal Vendors:
Caterer, restaurant, commercial kitchen, or meal provider? If you would like to learn more about paid partnership to provide meals this summer, email Mercedes Sanders at msanders@foodbankcenc.org for more information.

Waivers for this year’s Kids Summer Meals service include:

  • Meals can be grab-and-go; it is not necessary for the children to eat on site.
  • Parents and guardians can pick up the meals for their children, without children needing to be present.
  • Sites and programs may be able to provide children and guardians with multiple meals during a single pick-up.
