Summer Food Service Program

Let summer meals help your kids eat healthy and stay active. Many summer programs at parks, schools, libraries, and other fun, safe places serve healthy food to power kids and teens while they play and learn.

Children who eat healthy and stay active during summer will remember more of what they learned in school and be better prepared when they go back in the fall.

Summer meals help families save money. They are offered for free to all kids ages 18 and under. Simply drop by when meals or snacks are served – no sign-up or paperwork is needed.  Adults are welcome to bring their own meals and eat with their kids.

All kids and teens are welcome!

How Summer Meals Work:

  • Places and meals are state-approved for health and safety.
  • Kids and teens ages 18 and under (and young adults with disabilities under 21) eat at no cost.
  • Many places offer fun enrichment activities and learning opportunities.
  • Meals are eaten at the location they are served.
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the New York State Education Department partner to bring meals to communities across the state.
  • All meals served meet USDA federal nutrition guidelines.
  • USDA reimburses local sponsors for summer meals served to kids and teens.
