Summer Food Program
Children from low-income households are often most at risk of hunger during the summer months, when school meal programs do not operate. The East Texas Food Bank’s Summer Food Program provides free lunches and breakfasts in low-income areas where the majority of school children are eligible for free and reduced-price school meal programs. The program also provides a variety of games, nutrition education opportunities and other enrichment activities for participating children. Nearly 23,000 meals were distributed in the Summer of 2020 to children at 25 sites throughout our service area.
