Summer Meals Program

In our community, an average of more than 50 percent of students receive free or reduced lunch during the school year. The Food Shelf at Neighbors always sees increased use in the summer when the kids are not getting fed in school. The Summer Meal Program is one way to help meet this need!

Kids can get free breakfast and lunch in the school settings where they are already comfortable. Many of the sites in our area are considered “open sites,” meaning that it doesn’t matter if you even attend school at that location. If you are ages 1 – 18, you can come eat. Please see below for a complete list of school times and locations.

The Summer Meals Program is a partnership between the USDA, ISD #197, Special District #6 and Neighbors. The USDA provides the food, the schools provide an expert cafeteria staff person at each site, and Neighbors provides volunteers.
