Free Summer Meal Poster

As part of its efforts to ensure kids have access to healthy meals during the summer months, we are pleased to announce summer meal sites in Marion, Hiawatha, and Cedar Rapids will again be serving kids and teens free meals. All kids and teens 18 and under can receive meals free of charge, no registration is needed. Meals must be eaten on-site.

The summer months are already one of the hungriest times of year for many kids. The need will be even greater this summer as the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic.

The Summer Meals program is funded by the USDA and run by school districts and local organizations, and sites can be found throughout the community. Families can text “FOOD” or “COMIDA” to 304-304 and type in a zip code to find nearby summer meal sites, along with operating days and times. No application, registration, or proof of residency or citizenship is required at sites.
