Kids & Teens EAT FREE
Food That’s In When School Is Out
Parents, save money on groceries this summer! Your children 18 and under can eat free, healthy food at
safe locations, such as your nearby pool, park, church or school. All families are welcome, and there is
no sign up necessary- just bring your children to a summer meal site. Many locations offer fun activities
so your kids can stay active and spend time with friends. Call 1-855-570-7377 to find a location near you then
stop by for food, friends, and fun! The Ohio Summer Food Service Program is administered by the United States
Department of Agriculture.
