From Our Friends
FREE Summer Meals for Children & Youth - Sign Up Today!
Summer BreakSpot, a program that provides free meals to children and youth ages birth-18 years at participating service sites, is underway. We encourage ALL children and youth summer program providers to contact sponsors TODAY to secure participation at each of their program service sites. Be sure to confirm available menus (hot or cold) and delivery times BEFORE making a decision on which sponsor best meets the needs of your participants and program environment. In addition, we strongly urge providers to designate their program service sites as “open sites,” where children and youth ages birth-18 years living in their communities may also participate in the free meals program, even if they do not participate in provider programming. Open sites serve a critical role in minimizing food insecurity in Miami-Dade while schools are closed and are, for some children, a literal lifesaver. The Children’s Trust is also supporting Florida Impact efforts to increase accessibility to summer meals for those children who have no access to open sites, through pediatric clinics and WIC and HUB sites. Contact Christina Sudduth at csudduth@flimpact.org for more information. Parents can call 211 or text FOOD or COMIDA (for Spanish) to 877-877 to find service sites delivering summer meals for children ages birth-18 near their home.
