The D.C. Free Summer Meals Program is FREE to all children ages 18 and younger. There is no application necessary to receive a meal.
Summer Meals sites serve nutritionally balanced meals that meet USDA guidelines. A typical lunch, for example, will include a turkey sandwich on wheat bread, milk, an apple, and a salad. In addition to healthy food, many sites offer safe, fun, and enriching activities. To find out the type of activities offered, call the site.
Visit the D.C. Free Summer Meals page at the D.C. Superintendent of Education Web site for a listing of summer meal sites.
