Summer Food Service Program

TUSD Summer Food Service banner

Free meals are available to children 18 and under through the Summer Food Service Program.

A program of the United States Department of Agriculture, the Summer Food Service Program ensures that children receive adequate nutrition over the summer months when school is out.

Too few Tucson families know about this program, despite there being more than 100 locations where meals are served. Please tell others who may need this assistance. Find a location near you at azsummerfood.gov.
