Summer program offers grab-and-go meals to Rochester kids

Though school is out for the summer, children in the City of Rochester will have access to free and healthy meals all summer long.

The Summer Meals Program will provide grab-and-go meals for Rochester youths up to 18 years of age. The program helps to ensure that school-aged children continue to have access to the same nourishment they receive during the school year and that no children are hungry while school is not in session.

Schools that are serving as summer meal sites began serving meals June 25, while many other sites — such as R-Centers — will start July 6. While the meals will continue to be offered as grab and go, many meal sites are offering opportunities for kids to stay to participate in physical and other enrichment activities this summer.

In addition, through a partnership with the Regional Transit Services, there will be several “mobile meals” stops and delivery routes to reach more city neighborhoods.

The Summer Meals Program is a partnership between the City of Rochester, Foodlink, Rochester City School District, Rochester Area Community Foundation and Common Ground Health.

The full list of summer meal sites can be found at or by calling 211.
