Dear SCS Families,

For many kids, summertime means food, friends, and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch however, the summer months can be stressful when family food budgets have to stretch even further. Free summer meals, funded by the USDA, are available to kids and teens ages 18 and younger at summer meals sites across Virginia.

Many summer meals sites offer fun learning and recreational activities so kids and teens can eat a healthy meal while staying active and being with friends. Sites are also registered with the USDA and are held at safe local places like schools and libraries.

Free Summer Meal Program Details:

  • Meals are FREE to children and teens ages 18 and younger who come to a summer meals site

  • Free summer meals will help families save money and stretch their already tight food budgets

  • Food served is healthy and follows USDA nutrition guidelines
