Here's where kids can find free meals all summer across San Diego County

Feeding San Diego, along with other local groups are providing free, nutritious meals to kids five days a week this summer.

SAN DIEGO — San Diego youth will be provided free, nutritious meals this summer as Feeding San Diego and other local non-profit organizations tackle food insecurity for students. 

The Summer Food Service Program will provide hunger-relief services at 22 meal sites across San Diego County. 

Children 18 and under can receive a free breakfast, lunch, or snack to eat daily at one of the meal sites. 

The effort partners Feeding San Diego along with other hunger-relief non-profit partners, recreation centers, and libraries across the county to distribute prepared meals to kids five days a week.

According to data from California Department of Education, there are nearly 500,000 kindergarten through 12 students in San Diego County, and over 240,000 of those students rely on free or reduced-price meals while in school.

During the break from school, that means nearly 50% of San Diego County students could access to nutritious meals.

Anyone in need of food assistance can find more resources here.
