Program Description

The Summer Food Service Program provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to children in low-income areas. The program helps children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months and during other long periods when they are out of school.

Program Requirements

All children 18 years of age or younger who come to an approved food service site are eligible to receive free meals. Sites serving adults who are enrolled in educational programs for persons with disabilities may also be eligible to participate in the Summer Food Service Program. Sites must either be located in low-income communities or serve primarily low-income children. At certain sites, such as residential camps, benefits are available only to children, and to adults with disabilities, whose families meet the income standard for free or reduced-price meals. Children qualify to receive free or low-cost meals while they attend school (high school and under) if their families’ household incomes meet the current income eligibility guidelines. Children who participate in certain other programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and children who are migrant, runaway, foster, or homeless, are automatically eligible for free meals.

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $22,459
2 $30,451
3 $38,443
4 $46,435
5 $54,427
6 $62,419
7 $70,411
8 $78,403

*For households with more than eight people, add $7,992 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.
