Summer is a difficult time for children relying on school meals, resulting in hunger for many. Not only do children go without, but often parents go without meals to feed their children first. A national nonprofit, Share Our Strength, is working to end this struggle for families with the No Kid Hungry Summer Meals Texting Hotline. In just a few easy steps, families can use this hotline to fill the meal gap their children may experience.

 

Text ‘FOOD’ or ‘COMIDA’ to 877-877 or call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE to find free summer meals closest to your location. *

 

Free summer meals, funded by the USDA, are available to kids and teens ages 18 and under at many schools, churches and community centers. With many sites offering fun learning and recreational activities as well, kids and teens can get a healthy, delicious meal and have a free, safe place to hang out with their friends.

 

*While the hotline is able to return results for inputs that include only city and state and/or zip code, including a full street address will return more accurate results.
