The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank’s Free Summer Meal Program Will Provide Daily Nutritious Meals to an Average of 2,000 Kids Facing Hunger in LA County

LOS ANGELES —November 24, 2020 — the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank will continue to serve lunch and breakfast through the USDA’s extension of the Summer Meal Program. The program will continue through September 30, 2021, providing nutritious morning and midday meals to children who would normally receive breakfast and lunch at school.

An estimated 9,376 breakfast meals and over 10,036 lunch meals will be served daily. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will be served at 55 locations throughout Los Angeles County. The 55 locations include the following:

  1. Daily on-site programming locations.
  2. Daily grab and go Monday-Friday meal locations.
  3. Food boxes distributed once a week with 7 breakfast and 7 lunch meals.

The Food Bank’s Child Nutrition programs provide well-balanced meals and food kits for children facing hunger all year long. Access to healthy food helps prevent nutritiona­­­l deficiencies that could turn into lifelong health problems such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes. It also establishes healthy eating habits and provides the nutrition needed to concentrate and perform well in school. Early access to healthy meals supports strong educational development, which in turn sets kids up for a successful future full of opportunity and promise.

To learn more about how your child can receive free, nutritious lunches this summer, including details about service times and types of meals offered, please visit LAFoodBank.org/summerlunch.

In accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, the Food Bank is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
