United Way of King County and partners are back again this Summer with the free Summer Meals program.

Here are the details:

United Way’s mission is to help families become financially stable and end child hunger, which includes serving thousands of meals throughout the region and reducing the burden of food expenses. For families who rely on the Free & Reduced Lunch program and discounted meals during the school year, the free Summer Meals program serves as a timely resource for low-income families when school is out. Less than 20% of families who qualify for the Free & Reduced Lunch program, accessed the Summer Meals program in Summer 2017, leaving plenty of free meals unclaimed.

With over 200 meal sites spread across King County, thousands of children and teenagers will be able to access free breakfast, lunch, supper and snacks. In addition to the healthy and nutritious food options offered, there are often learning and enrichment activities available to all kids who participate. Meal sites operate from end of June through late-August and will have various times and days of operation, many operating five days a week as well as serving weekend meals at select locations. Meals are free for all youth ages 18 and under. There is no cost or sign-up needed. Just find your nearest meal site and get ready to eat and play!

“Please help us spread the word about free Summer Meals to ensure that every kid has access to healthy meals during the summertime.”
