Kids Eat Free When School is Out

2 girls at table outside

The Summer Food Service Program provides free meals and snacks to children 18 and under when school is not in session. When school lets out, thousands of low-income Utah children lose access to school breakfast, lunch, and afterschool meals that are available during the regular school year. Summer Food fills this gap by providing free meals and snacks to children who might have limited access to nutritious food in the summer. Kids do not need to register or fill out an application to participate-they just need to show up!

The majority of meals served at Utah summer food sites are provided either by Provo School District or by the Boys & Girls Club of Utah County. Seven Summer Food sites are located in the city of Provo, and additional sites are located throughout the state. *Sites closed July 4th and July 25th.

  1. Thank you, friends, for caring about the young and most vulnerable among us. With these wonderful migrant and refugee families trying to escape the violence and poverty of their home nations, Provo can truly be a beacon for their peace and security as they attempt to establish a new home, decent nutrition and health, education and language skills in their new land.

    Is there a place to donate money specifically to these program? Thanks!
