Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger

Free Meals During the Summer and All Year Long

Posted on August 1, 2016

What are summer meals?

There are more than 1,400 places in Philadelphia that serve free meals and snacks to kids and teens age 18 and under. There are no income requirements, ID, or registration in qualifying areas.

Sites include recreation centers, churches, schools, public housing complexes and community organizations.

Why are summer meals important?

During the school year, thousands of low-income students eat free or reduced-price meals at schools. But when school is out and kids aren’t receiving that food, children face higher risks for hunger and malnutrition. Summer meals help to fill that gap, so kids have the nutritious food they need to stay healthy all summer!
