The Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) Summer Food Program provides free meals during summer vacation. During the school year, MMSD Food & Nutrition serves children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals due to low household income. The summer program offers children nutritious meals when school is not in session. Children can eat for free, Monday – Friday, starting June 21rst. MMSD offers breakfast, lunch and snack. Meals vary by location. No application is required.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds the Summer Food Program and the State of Wisconsin administers the school meal service. All children 18 years of age and under can receive up to two free meals per site. Sites qualify if the school in the attendance area has more than 50% free and reduced lunch enrollment, or if more than 50% of the children participating at the site qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
There are several pop-up mobile food pantries available for MMSD families and the entire community throughout summer. See dates, times, and locations at mmsd.org/pop-mobile-food-pantries.
