Summer Food Program Feeds Kids for Free

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. A nutritious meal is important for children to learn, play, and remain active during the summer months. Remember, hunger doesn’t take a vacation!

Through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), CHANGE, Inc. provides free meals to children during the summer. Last year, 658 youth maintained and/or improved their health by receiving 9,328 nutritious meals at 8 Summer Food sites sponsored by CHANGE, Inc.

This summer, these meals will be served at the SFSP sites listed below. There are no income requirements or registration. Any child under the age of 18 may come to eat.
