Summer food sites to provide free, nutritious meals to kids

Summer should be a fun and enriching time for all Colorado kids and teens, but for many it represents a time when they are at the greatest risk of experiencing hunger due to lost access to school meals. Hundreds of community sites across Colorado will provide free, healthy summer meals to all kids up to 18 years old. Call the statewide food resource hotline toll-free at (855) 855-4626 or use the interactive map at www.KidsFoodFinder.org to find a site near you! The Summer Food Service Program was established as a safeguard for children during the summer months and is funded by the USDA and administered by the Colorado Department of Education.

Jeffco Public Schools participates in the Summer Meals Program. Download flyer with all of the Jefferson County School sites listed here: English and Spanish

Colorado families can also find nearby summer food sites by calling the statewide, bilingual Hunger Free Hotline toll-free at (855) 855-4626 or by using the interactive map at KidsFoodFinder.org.
