Summer Meals Program

Summer Meals Program

Summer is upon us, and this year more than ever youth (18 and under) who rely on schools for free nutritious meals during the school year may not have access to healthy meals in the summer months. That’s where the Summer Meals Program can help. Safe drop-in locations all across the city are offering free meals for Rochester youth or their families to pick up and bring home, all summer long.

For more info dial 2-1-1 or visit www.Summer MealsROC.org.
