Find summer meals near you through the Summer Food Service Program. The program is available in hundreds of communities throughout Oregon, offering free meals and snacks to ALL kids ages 1-18. Community summer meal programs are open to all families without paperwork, income verification, and regardless of immigration status. To receive a meal, kids can just drop in during a site's designated meal times. Many programs also offer fun activities so kids can stay active and keep learning.
