Summer Food Program

The Summer Nutrition Programs provides free meals and snacks to low-income children 18 and under when school is not in session.

When school lets out, millions of low-income children lose access to school breakfast, lunch, and after school meals that are available during the regular school year. Summer Nutrition Programs fill this gap by providing free meals and snacks to children who might have limited access to nutritious food in the summer. Kids do not need to register or fill out an application to participate-they just need to show up!

Summer food sites in Utah are almost always sponsored by a school district’s food service program and breakfast, lunch, and supper are served in parks and schools across the state. A few sites are sponsored by the Utah Food Bank, Salt Lake Community Action and Head Start, and the Community Presbyterian Church. The flyers below are sorted by school district and indicate who the sponsor is.

Many sites also provide fun activities for kids. For example, Utahns Against Hunger has partnered with the Salt Lake City School District to pilot a summer literacy program. Kids who visit Jordan Park on Tuesdays, Sherwood Park on Wednesdays, or Northwest Central Park on Thursdays will receive a free book all summer long!
