Food is in when school is out! Join partners across the state as they celebrate the arrival of summer and the availability of free summer meals for all children 18 and under through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Last year, over 270 meal sites were active across the state, and new and returning programs will be active this summer from June-August. Four Vermont communities have organized kickoff events to highlight the availability and importance of summer meals: These events are free to the public and will include fun events and activities alongside free meals for all children 18 and under. Meals provided by Burlington School Food Project.
If you’d like to find out where summer meal sites are located in your community, dial 2-1-1 or text ‘FOOD’ to 877-877 (these services will be active beginning mid-June); or contact Derrick Lambert at Hunger Free Vermont (firstname.lastname@example.org; 865-0255). Let’s make this the best summer yet for healthy meals in our state!
