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.

A mobile phone app from Hunger Impact Partners shows distance and directions to the nearest site for free meals at hundreds of Minnesota locations during summer school closures.

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