The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services says an online interactive map is intended to provide help to families in Missouri in finding free meals this summer.
The Summer Food Service Program provides thousands of breakfast and lunch meals and snacks to children living in eligible areas during the summer and during times of public emergencies when children do not have access to free or reduced-price meals through school.
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has been helping families in need during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Through the Summer Food Service Program, thousands of meals have been provided and will continue to be provided all summer. The program is designed to provide breakfast, lunch, and/or snacks to children living in eligible areas during the summer months and during times of public emergencies, when children do not have access to free or reduced-price meals at school.
Many of the sites are located in urban areas, but there are some sites available in Nodaway, Daviess, Daviess, and Clinton Counties within the region.
Meals will be served to children age 18 and under. They are also provided to individuals age 18 to 21 who have been determined by a state or local educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who participate in an established school program for the mentally or physically disabled.
