Summer Food Program

The 2017 Summer Food Service Program sponsored by the City of St. Louis runs from June 5, 2017 to August 11, 2017. Young persons 18 years of age and under can enjoy free breakfast and/or lunch at more than 60 sites within the metropolitan St. Louis area.

In addition, individuals over the age of 18, who have been determined by a state or local educational agency to have mental or physical disability, are eligible to be served meals.

The Summer Food Service Program was created by the federal government to ensure that children could continue to receive nutritious meals during the long break from school during the summer months, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs.

Hunger Lives Closer Than You Think! Do you know families with children in your neighborhood or communities that need meals this summer?

Please remember to tell the parents, caregivers and others within your community that the School’s Out Café is the place to send kids for free meals.

To become a food distribution site in you community or to find a meal site location in your area, contact the Department of Human Services, Youth and Family Division at (314) 657-1654.
