Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Children who aren’t hungry learn better, act better and feel better. The Summer Food Service Program helps children get the nutrition they need during the summer.

From June 3 to August 2 (excluding weekends and holidays) at more than 60 Denver Public Schools, any child between 1-18 years old can receive a free meal during breakfast and lunch. Adults can purchase a meal (Breakfast $2.00 / Lunch $3.50) as well. Registration is not required.
