Cherry Creek Schools helps ensure summer meals for children in the community

One in six children in Colorado don’t have access to foods needed to thrive. Kids that miss out on proper nutrition during the summer are more likely to experience learning loss and develop long-term health consequences. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is about serving kids across the community with free meals during the summer when they do not have access to school meals. The SFSP provides free, nutritious meals to children 18 years of age and under at approved sites in areas with high concentrations of low-income children.

To find summer meal sites anywhere in Colorado, visit or text ‘Food’ or ‘Comida’ to 304-304.
