SUN Meals Program Offers Free Meals and Snacks to Kids of All Ages During the Summer


KANSAS – During the summer, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is offering a SUN Meals program to teens and children (ages 18 and under) at no cost. 

Through the program, children have the opportunity to get meals and snacks during the summer at schools, parks, and other neighborhood locations across Kansas. Some rural communities are also offering SUN Meals To-Go.

Eligible school-aged children can also receive SUN Bucks, a new grocery benefit available across most of the U.S. 

Families can get $120 per child to buy groceries during the summer. Families can also receive SUN Bucks on top of other benefits like SNAP and WIC, and children can continue to enjoy free SUN Meals from local meal sites or with SUN Meals To-Go.

Find meals at schools, parks, and other locations near you using the USDA Summer Meals for Kids Site Finder.
