Summer meals for kids in need

Program aims to provide food to kids relying on school lunch during summer break.

NASHUA – With schools dismissing students for summer vacation, Southern New Hampshire Services will be providing free meals to children during the break.

Some students rely on the food they receive at school. The Summer Food Services Program works to fill that void by filling children’s stomachs. For 16 years now, the organization has been sponsoring this program to ensure at-risk youth are able to eat at least one nutritious meal each day when school lunch programs aren’t in service. The program also supports mental and physical development so that the kids don’t lose any ground while out on summer vacation.

Meals will be served at various locations

throughout the city, and in most cases, breakfasts and/or lunches are served Monday through Friday from June 25-Aug. 31. However, no meals will be served on July 4.

There are no income requirements, while registration is not required. Anyone age 18 or younger may be served a meal free of charge, but meals must be consumed onsite.
