Summer Meals Program

Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti spoke at a Summer Meals Information Session Wednesday, January 18th in Joliet to urge more nonprofit organizations in Will County to serve as sites for the Summer Meals Program. Click here to read the Herald-News article.

The Illinois State Board of Education in partnership with No Kid Hungry, Illinois, seeks nonprofit organizations to serve as sponsors and sites for the Summer Meals Program. The federally funded program provides healthy nutritious meals to kids, age 18 and younger. Children need healthy food all year long in order to grow and learn. During the school year, many Illinois children receive free- and reduced-price meals through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. But, when school is out for the summer, these same children are at risk of hunger or poor nutrition.

The Summer Meals program is designed to ensure that children have access to the nutritious meals they need during the summer months so their bodies and minds are healthy, strong and ready for the next school year.

Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor, a feeding site or wanting to promote the program are welcome to attend.
