Summer Meal Programs for Florida Children

» Written by // June 18, 2012 //


Approximately 308,000 Florida kids miss out on free meals during the summer.  Fewer low-income children across the country received free or discounted meals during the 2011 summer break than a year earlier despite steady increases nationwide in the number of children dependent on subsidized meals.

Reduced participation could be because too few parents and families know the meals are available when school lets out.  Because of a lack of marketing, Florida – which got $23.3 million in federal funding for children’s summer meals in 2011 – leaves $20 million more unused.  Almost twice as many needy children could get free or discounted meals if their parents knew about the program.

Summer meals are available to any child 18 or younger.  Unlike the school year lunch program, which requires a child to meet federal poverty guidelines, any child who visits a designated meal distribution site can be served.

In the Palm Beach County area, here are just some of the schools who participate:
