Healthy Summer Meals For Kids Only A Text Away


Share On Social!

Free and reduced-price school meals help make sure that over 21 million kids get at least two meals a day, but what happens during the summer?

That’s where the No Kid Hungry program can help. They created a resource where families can text ‘FOOD’ (for English responses) or ‘COMIDA’ (for Spanish responses) to 877-877 and receive locations providing summer meals nearest the zip code entered.

Without programs like these, 6 out of 7 kids who are able to get free and reduced-price lunches during the school year might not have access to nutritious meals in the summer.

Of those enrolled in nutrition programs at school, Latino children make up 32% of kids receiving free lunches and 29.7% of kids receiving reduced lunches.

For more information, go to or text FOOD or COMIDA to 877-877 for more information. Learn more about Latino kids and access to healthier foods from Salud America!
