Summer Free Food For Kids 2021

Updated as of June 22nd –The Summer Meal Program, also known as the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to help ensure children have nutritious meals when school is out of session.

Different organizations like Deer Park, Riverside, and Mary Walker School Districts as well as Spokane County Library District sponsor meals in our area.
