Free Summer Meals for Kids and Teens

(This is a public service announcement)

This summer, hundreds of sites across Washington State, including several in South Seattle, are providing free meals for kids and teens! Places like local high schools, elementary schools, community centers, parks and apartment complexes, will serve breakfast, lunch and snacks to anyone under the age of 18. It is open to everyone! There is no enrollment, income level requirements, or registration necessary.

Some of these sites have enrichment activities for children to help prevent summer learning loss that can occur during the summer break. Meal times, and days of the week will vary among sites, along with the actual meals served. To find a Summer Meals site near you: Call 1-888-4FOOD-WA, visit parenthelp123.org or Text MEALS to 96859.
