Without proper nutrition all through the summer months, kids can’t grow and develop properly, and they return to school in the fall poorly prepared to learn. The Summer Food Service Program provides nutritionally balanced meals to kids all summer long, filling the gap left by school meal programs that don’t operate through the summer.

How does it work? Site sponsors provide food to summer meal sites spread across Iowa, where volunteers distribute the meals to kids in need. 

Central Iowa Shelter & Services (CISS) is overseeing Summer Meal Meet-Ups. Summer Meal Meet-Ups offers free meals to kids throughout the summer of 2021 and invites anyone ages 18 and under to one of the many meal sites in Iowa to receive free and nutritious meals. Central Iowa Shelter & Services’ sites will start Friday, June 4th and run every week during the summer Monday-Friday at various times and locations. Learn more HERE. 

Find a summer meal site near you by using the USDA site locator tool or texting “FOOD” to 877877.
