Summer Food Service Program

What is the Summer Food Service Program? 

The Summer Food Service Program ensures that children continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast.  

In addition to the Summer Food Service Program, Care and Share will be operating a select number of Summer Mobile Food Pantries in Colorado Springs and Pueblo during the Summer Food Service Program hours of operation. To view a list of Summer Mobile Food Pantry locations, please click on the orange button below Care and Share Summer Mobile Food Pantries

Who can participate? 

All children 18 years of age and under who go to an approved site may receive free meals. A person 19 years of age and over who has a mental or physical disability (as determined by a State or local educational agency) and participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program may also receive free meals.

Important Note

Summer food sites change often. Please check back frequently to the links above (Both the Colorado Summer Food Finder and USDA Summer Food Finder) to see if additional sites have been added in your neighborhood.
