Every summer, hundreds of sites across New York City provide free meals to children ages 18 and under. This summer there will be over 1,000 sites throughout the five boroughs, which will operate every weekday from June 28th through August 31st.
sites do not require children to present identification or parents to
fill out any forms – children just need to show up to eat!

children have participated during past summers. Why? Some families
simply do not know that Summer Meals sites exist, or how to find
them. Thankfully, finding out about Summer Meals locations is now
easier than ever!
Starting on June 27th, New Yorkers can find their nearest site by either calling 311, texting the word NYCMeals to 877-877, or online.
