FOOD

The Summer Food Service Program(SFSP), also known as the Summer Meals Program, was established to ensure that children and teens aged 18 and younger receive free, healthy breakfasts, lunches, and snacks during the summer months.

Summer 2024 sites will operate approximately July 1 through August 23, 2024. Each youth can receive up to two meals or one meal and one snack per day to be eaten onsite.

Eligibility

Children between the ages of 1-18 are eligible for the Summer Food Service Program.

The City of Seattle’s Summer Food Program is an equal opportunity provider and follows the federal program’s guidelines. See the USDA’s full civil rights statement.

All Seattle residents regardless of immigration status are eligible for City of Seattle programs and services unless noted otherwise.
