Summer Meals

When schools are closed and regular meal service is unavailable, summer meals provide essential nutrition to children 18 and under.

Summer Meals

To meet the nutritional needs of children whose families may be vulnerable to hunger, many public school districts provide nutritious meals at no cost throughout the summer, often working with community partners to offer additional enrichment opportunities and family services.

California Food for California Kids offers resources, including our Farm to Summer Planning Guide, to help districts meet high targets for menu design, enrichment activities, and marketing programs that reach a broad community. Often working with community partners, districts provide a vital service while celebrating California’s agricultural abundance.

We know that hunger doesn’t stop just because school is out. Providing nutritious meals to children throughout the summer helps them return to school ready to learn.
