Free Summer Meals for Kids


Several summer feeding program sites in Austin and beyond will be offering free breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks from June 1 to August 30, 2013, excluding weekends. Free nutritious meals for children 18 and younger are provided through the Summer Food Service Program, which was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. No registration or identification is needed.

The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Free Fun in Austin calendar is only for live digital events at this time.

Go here to find a food site near you. Pay attention to which days, times, and meals each one is serving, as they vary by location.
