Local Summer Food Programs for Children

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Summer Food Service Program helps families access food for their children during the summer. It provides breakfast, lunch, and/or snacks to children living in eligible areas when children do not have access to free or reduced-price meals at school.

An online interactive map is available to help Missouri families find where their children can receive free meals this summer. The map and more information about the Summer Food Service Program can be found here or by texting the phrase “Summer Meals” to the text number 914-342-7744.

The meals are provided to all children, regardless of family income, that attend the meal service location. Children do not have to register and there is no fee to participate in the program.
