Summer Food Services

Seattle children ages 1 through 18 years will enjoy free breakfasts, lunches, and snacks once again this summer through our Summer Food Service Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which will run from July 1 through August 21, 2020. Most sites will be closed Thursday, July 4th, in observance of the Independence Day holiday, but a select few sites may be operating.

“Children and youth need access to healthy, nutritious food year-round to help them learn, play, and grow including the summer when school year resources are not available,” said Jason Johnson, Interim Director of HSD. “The Summer Food Service Program meets this critical need and allows us to partner with community organizations across Seattle in pursuing HSD’s mission to support Healthy Communities, Healthy Families.”

Here’s how you can find the closest meal site:

SPS is committed to providing meal service to students during this pandemic. The district will continue meal distribution throughout the summer at the 26 meal distribution school sites. Sack breakfasts and lunches prepared by our central kitchen and reheatable meals prepared by FareStart will be available for all SPS students Monday through Friday, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. All sites will be closed July 3 and July 6.
SPS also will continue providing student meals by bus Monday through Friday throughout Seattle except for July 3 and July 6. However, some routes have been canceled or revised.
