Find info about NJ summer meal sites!

The New Jersey Department of Agriculture has uploaded meal sites and locations to the USDA’s sitefinder at https://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks. People can also text the word “food” to 877 877 and get a list of sites in their area.

Please share this information through your e-networks, social media feeds and on your websites.

The New Jersey Food for Thought Campaign has also posted a list of summer meal sponsors, along with a local outreach toolkit, flyers, social media messages, sample letters to the editor and other outreach tools.

Please use these resources to spread the word about summer meals in your community. 

More Info 
Tens of thousands of New Jersey students rely on school meals during the academic year. When school’s out, family budgets are stretched tight and children lack access to the meals they rely on during the school year. Despite this need and free meals being served in communities across the state, just 21 percent of our kids received these meals in 2016. Please help spread the word!

In general, summer meals programs, funded through the USDA, are free and require no identification or income verification from parents.
