  • End Hunger CT - Summer Meals Program

    05/22/2017


    Free meals are available for kids and teens 18 and under all summer across Connecticut.


     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Childhood food insecurity remains at unacceptable levels across the country and children are most acutely at risk in the summer when they do not have access to school meals.  There were 708 sites in the summer of 2016 across Connecticut offering free meals to children 18 years and younger, yet only 1 out of 4 of CT’s children who access school meals are accessing Free Summer Meals.  

    PLEASE NOTE:  Even if you do not have a Summer Meals program in your town, children ages 18 and younger may visit Open Summer Meals sites anywhere in the state to receive a meal.  The Location Finder on the website is a search tool that uses an address, town, or zip code to locate Summer Meals locations and displays the results in both a Google Map and as a list with all of the pertinent information (location, hours, meals served, etc.) included.   For more information call 211, text CTmeals to 877877 or visit www.CTSummerMeals.org
