Summer Meals for Kids!

Hunger Doesn't Take a Summer Vacation

Summer Meals for KidsJust as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. Gleaners' Summer Meals for Kids Program provides free, nutritious meals to help children in low-income areas get the proper food they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months. 

Who we serve

Summer Meals for Kids provides free lunches to youth age 18 and under at sites in high-need rural communities. There is no registration or documentation required. If you come to a site and you are 18 or under, you can eat free!
Summer Meals Girls
We work closely with community partners and local volunteers to provide fun, safe environments where all children will feel comfortable grabbing a bite with their friends.

The impact

Gleaners piloted its first summer feeding program in 2012. We served more than 14,000 free lunches to children at nine sites in three counties. In 2012, approximately 57% of surveyed families that participated in the Summer Meals for Kids program reported that they were unsure whether they would have enough food to feed their family during the summer. 83% of those same families said that the Summer Meals for Kids program helped to decrease their overall summer food expenses.

School vacation can be a hungry time for children who receive free/reduced lunches during the school year.
