About the Program
Millions of kids in America go hungry during the summer. The USDA’s Summer Food Service Program fills the gap during the summer for children who receive free or reduced in-school meal programs during the school year. The Summer Food program provides free, nutritious meals for kids at local organizations, like schools, recreation centers, playgrounds, parks, churches, summer camps and more all over the country – all summer long.
Through WhyHunger’s Hotline and online resources directory, families anywhere in the U.S. can get information about summer feeding sites in their neighborhoods so kids have access to nutritious food during the summer months. Year-round the WhyHunger Hotline and resource directory connect people in need to food pantries, soup kitchens and government nutrition programs across the U.S. Help is available at 1(800) 5-HUNGRY, Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 6:00pm. (EST) or by texting the word SUMMER along with your ZIP CODE to 1-800-548-6479 . For more information about WhyHunger go to: whyhunger.org/findfood·
