Kids Eat Free This Summer

Summer program offers free breakfast and lunch at selected locations June 24–August 16

Summer is here and school is out—but some 4J cafeterias are still cooking.

Eugene School District 4J will provide meals at four school sites this summer: Holt, Howard and River Road/El Camino del Río elementary schools, and Sheldon High School.

Eugene School District 4J serves about 10,000 meals to students each day when school is in session. Kids’ need for healthy food to grow, learn and thrive doesn’t end when school lets out for the summer. The Summer Food Service Program works to help fill that nutritional gap.

Children are welcome to eat at any summer meal site; they do not need to be students at that school. There are no application, income or enrollment requirements. All children age 18 and younger can eat free. Parents and siblings age 19+ are invited to eat with their children by bringing their own food or purchasing a meal ($3.00 for breakfast, $4.00 for lunch).
