More about Children's Summer Lunch

The Children’s Summer Lunch Program provides nutirtion assistance to low-income children on summer weekdays. Children 18 and younger may participate in the program by going to a designated lunch site during service times.

56% of all Humboldt County school children qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program during the school year, but what do they eat when school is out? The Children’s Summer Lunch Program represents the nutritional link between the end of one school year and the beginning of another. Food for People partners with local parks and recreation programs, community centers and volunteers to provide healthy sack lunches at locations around the county.

If you have questions about our Children's Summer Lunch program, contact our Child Nutrition Programs Coordinator at (707) 445-3166, extension 309 or email ChildNutrition@foodforpeople.org.
