When school is out, for many children it can mean the loss of a regular breakfast and lunch. Below are two options in MN that help families find the resources to help fill this gap.

TEXT "FOOD" Beginning June 4, if you know a student in grades K to 12 who is in need of breakfast and lunch this summer, text “FOOD” to 877877. You'll get a message back that asks you to text your zip code (you can also text the child's zip code). The next message you get will be a list of schools closest to that zip code where kids can get free meals this summer.

 

SUMMER EATS MN APP Minnesota is the first state in the nation to offer a program that allows kids under 18 to access an app that provides 700 sites across that state that offer free meals during the summer.
