Summer Meals Access
FOOD ACCESS CHALLENGES RISE IN SUMMER
We created the Free Meals for Kids mobile app, in partnership with MDE, to support school nutrition programs for students during COVID-19. As we approach summer, we are going to continue to use this app platform in place of the Summer Eats Minnesota mobile app.
Please help us keep the information up-to-date so your meal programs can help the kids that need it most.
Minnesota ranks 12th out of 50 states in ensuring that children have adequate summer nutrition
FREE MEALS FOR KIDS Mobile App
Free Meals for Kids app helps families and kids locate free healthy meals across Minnesota during the pandemic. Let’s work together to ensure hungry kids don’t miss a meal during the summer. The app is powered by GPS and shows locations of schools and other sites that are providing meals and meal packs, with days and hours for distribution. It also shows the distance and directions to the nearest site from your location. The app is updated daily.
