Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

This program is an extension of the free and reduced lunch program provided in the school districts during the school year. Various school and community partners enable IU5 to provide free breakfast, lunch, and/or snack options to thousands of children each summer.

“When school lets out for summer, millions of children lose access to school breakfast and lunch and are at risk of going hungry.

The USDA Food & Nutrition Service’s summer meal programs work to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
