The  USDA Meal Finder helps families locate free meals for kids this summer.  

The USDA Summer Food Service has a goal to ensure that every Vermont family with eligible children knows about the program and where they can access meals during the summer months. 

At summer meal sites across the state, children 18 and under can receive free meals and snacks, no questions asked!

There is no paperwork to fill out if visiting a site from the USDA Meal Finder, and you do not need to live in the town where you are picking up meals.

The meals follow USDA guidelines to ensure they are nutritious, safe, and delicious. Ask for a menu from your local meal site using the USDA Meal Finder so that you can look ahead to see what is being served daily! 

Times, start & end dates, and days of operation vary by site. Be sure to check with your local site for accurate information.
