Find Meals For Kids When School Is Closed


Summer 2021 is here!

Kids and teens can get free, healthy summer meals while staying safe. Many meal sites are serving grab-and-go meals to allow for social distancing.

Hunger Free America operates the National Hunger Hotline on behalf of USDA. The hotline is a resource for individuals and families seeking information on how to obtain food. The National Hunger Hotline staff connects callers with emergency food providers in their community, government assistance programs, and various social services.

Find free food near you by calling the USDA National Hunger Hotline at 866-3-HUNGRY (866-348-6479) or 877-8-HAMBRE from Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET, or by visiting our online database of food pantries and soup kitchens.

You may also text “97779” to the automated service with a question that may contain a keyword such as “food”, “summer”, “meals”, etc. to receive an automated response to resources located near an address and/or zip code.


To receive updates about the status of Pandemic-EBT benefits in your state, text "PEBT" to 97779.
