The meals are served at places children can gather when school is not in session such as parks, swimming pools, churches, YMCA facilities and Boys and Girls Clubs.
The map can be found here funding for the program is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, meals are provided to children who receive free or reduced price meals during the regular school year. There is no registration and meals are provided with no fees to those qualified. For more information call 1-888-435-1464.
