Free Summer Meals for Hamden Kids, Including New Summer Supper and Mobile Pantry Sites!

What are Summer Meals?
The free Summer Meals program is an extension of the National School Lunch Program when school is out. They are federally funded programs through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and are administered by the CT State Department of Education. 

What food is served?
Similar to the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, the Summer Meals Programs must meet federal nutrition guidelines. A nutritious meal composed of fruits/vegetables, grains, protein, and milk is served. Meals must be eaten at the site.

What is the cost?

It’s FREE for all children 18 years old and younger.

What do you need to register?

NOTHING! Children do not need to be registered for any programs to receive a summer meal. All children and teens 18 and younger are welcome at any location. There is absolutely no cost to the child or family for the meals, and there is no ID, paperwork, or registration required.
