This summer, free grab-n-go meals for all kids and teens ages 18 and under will be available at multiple sites from June 21 to August 13. No paperwork is required, and we do not collect personal information. Children must be present to receive a meal.

All site locations, addresses, dates and times are listed below. To find the site closest to you, you can also text FOOD or COMIDA to 877-877.

As in 2020, we will utilize the USDA waiver that allows children to take their meals with them instead of needing to stay on-site to eat. In addition to the numerous volunteers and community partners who are integral to the daily operations of this program, we are tremendously grateful to St. Joseph Catholic Church who will once again offer Marian Hall and its commercial kitchen as the home base for our program.

Food is incredibly important for a developing child or teen, and yet over 20,000 children in Clark County are considered food insecure (they do not know when or where their next meal is coming from). Research shows that receiving free or reduced-price meals reduces food insecurity, obesity rates, and poor health in children.  Summer Meals is a federally funded, state-administered program that reimburses providers who serve free healthy meals to children & teens when school is not in session. The goal of the program is to give all children 18 and under access to nutritious meals in low-income areas while they do not have access to free/reduced school meals.
