Hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation

Just 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.

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!

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.
