Feeding Our Community

Summer meals for kids and teens are available all summer long at sites across our 21-county service area!  Stopping by a summer meal site with your family not only saves you time and money spent grocery shopping and meal prepping; it also helps support our community.

Summer meal programming is federally funded.  Changes at the federal level no longer allow grab & go or multi-day meals.  However, due to on-going challenges with COVID, select sites are allowed to offer grab & go.  These sites are indicated below with an asterisk (*). 

We are dedicated to serving children in our communities and we plan to serve meals throughout the summer.  All meals are served following USDA nutrition guidelines. 

It's hard to measure the impact Catholic Charities' Kids Summer Food Program has on families. For Desiree, a mother of five who brought her children to the site almost daily, it was a difference-maker. "This is a good time for us bonding together; getting to sit at the table and all eat together."
