What Is the Summer BreakSpot?

Summer BreakSpot:

  • Provides nutritious meals at no cost to children 18 and under while school is out for the summer;

  • Operates at schools, nonprofit organizations and government entities, such as parks and libraries; and

  • Reimburses participating organizations for meals through the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) Summer Food Service Program or Seamless Summer Option.


The program provides free:

  • Nutritionally balanced meals during summer recess when school breakfasts and lunches are not available

  • Hot and cold meals at participating sites via on site consumption, ensuring maximum compliance to health and safety standards

  • Items featured on the menus are made fresh, from locally sourced foods that children will enjoy

  • Grab and go meal options are available if the need arises

How Can Organizations Help?

Organizations can:

  • Become a Summer BreakSpot sponsor and serve nutritious meals to children;

  • Offer your facilities as a site location for other organizations to provide the meals;

  • Publicize the program to families with newsletters, mailings and through digital communications; and

  • Visit to see where service and resource gaps exist in your community.
