This Summer: Kids & Teens Eat Free at 45 South Seattle Locations

This Summer: Kids & Teens Eat Free at 45 South Seattle Locations

Good nutrition is essential for effective learning every day, all year long. And just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Which is why thousands of Seattle children ages 1 through 18 will enjoy free breakfasts and lunches this summer through the Seattle Human Services Department’s Summer Food Service Program.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded program, formerly known as “Summer Sack Lunch,” is open to children at qualifying sites. From June 28 through August 25, the meals will be served at approximately 100 sites across the city—including 45 throughout South Seattle (see list below). The goal of the program is to keep low-income kids from going hungry while not at school.
