Summer 2020: Free Meals for Children and Youth

June 15–September 4*

Grab-and-go meals will be provided through the summer at six school sites, available for free for all students and youth 18 and younger. Families can choose the location that is most convenient for them, regardless of where they live or attend school, and income requirements do not apply (all are invited to participate).

Meal bags include breakfast and lunch, including hot options most days. Thursday distribution includes up to four meals per bag, with items intended to be consumed immediately and other items intended to be re-heated or cooked over the weekend. To see daily menu, go to the Titan Online Menu, which also provides allergens and nutrition information.
