Summer Food Service Program

Summers Shouldn’t Be Hungry

With thousands of kids and teens receiving free or reduced lunch, when school ends, so do these vital programs. And their impact can be felt across our community.

However, there are places children can turn to during the hungry days of summer.

Feed More’s Summer Food Service Program is a major effort to ensure that thousands of children and teens receive healthy and reliable breakfast and lunch meals, free of charge, during these critical weeks.

With close to 50 sites across greater Richmond and the Tri-Cities where kids and teens 18 years and younger can receive a healthy meal, we remain committed to providing children with the nutritional building blocks they need to learn and grow all year long.

In order to be a Feed More Summer Food Service Program site, organizations must be a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization and located in the area of a public school (elementary, middle or high school) where at least 50 percent of the students are eligible for free or reduced price meals. For more information, please read our Summer Food Service Program site requirements or email our Children’s Program Manager.

Our Summer Food Service Program sites have closed for the summer. If you, your family or someone you know is in need of emergency food assistance, please feel free to complete our Hunger Hotline form or call (804) 521-2500 to get the help you need.
