Our Summer Meals program operates annually from the end of June to mid-August. Information on the 2023 program will be posted here in June, so please check back!

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.

All site locations, addresses, dates and times will be listed on this site. To find the site closest to you, you can also text FOOD or COMIDA to
304-304.
