Many kids do not know about this fabulous and completely free program that provides them with breakfast and lunch over the summer months when they are not in school.

Here’s the basic info:

Who: DCFSMP serves all children ages 18 and younger who are DC residents

Where: Sites are at DPR centers, libraries, DC Public Schools, charter schools, and houses of worship

When: Breakfast and lunch are the most common meals served. Some sites serve dinner as well.

How: Children and teens can just show up at a site during meal time to receive a FREE meal. People can call 211 to learn more.
