SUMMER MEAL PROGRAM IN SAN ANTONIO
More than 1 in 5 children face hunger and food insecurity in Texas. When the school year ends, these children can lose access to regular, healthy school meals. The federally-funded Summer Meal Program in San Antonio provides meals at no cost to children 18 years and younger during the summer months. Families can locate a Summer Meals site by calling 211 in Texas.
The USDA program provides reimbursement to school districts and organizations like city recreational centers, food banks, and YMCAs and is administered in Texas by the Texas Department of Agriculture. All sites provide no-cost, nutritious meals to children during the months when school is closed.
The meals provided by Summer Meal Program sites must meet federal nutrition standards and include fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Many sites also provide educational activities to help children continue to learn during the summer break. Families participating in the Summer Meals Program do not need to apply, register, or provide identification. They can just show up at the times of operation for a healthy, nutritious meal.
The Summer Meal Program in San Antonio ensures that children have access to food to maintain their nutritional health throughout the summer.
