Summer Food Programs
Food programs for school-age children
Healthy food is available free or at low-cost to school children in some areas. To find out if your child's school offers breakfast or lunch programs like this, contact your local school district and ask to speak with someone about nutrition programs available through the school.
When school lets out for the summer a child's need for food does not go away. The Summer Food Service Program is designed to fill this potential nutrition gap, ensuring children can get the nutritious meals they need to stay healthy and alert. This is free of charge and does not require any enrollment. Find a location near you.
In addition, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital will be hosting Project Inspire in five sessions from August 9 thru 13, 2021. Project Inspire is an online program for children ages 10-12 to learn about nutrition, healthy eating, and healthy living.
