When school isn’t in session during the summer, kids 18 and under can receive free meals at locations that include park and recreation sites, community centers, libraries and schools. No registration is required.

Our Free Meals for Kids mobile app will help you locate meal sites and features other resources.

The app shows distance and directions to the nearest site for free meals at hundreds of Minnesota locations during summer school closures, as well as on weekends and during school breaks.

Developed with the Minnesota Department of Education, the app provides each site’s menu and hours.
