Free Summer Meals for Low-Income Youth  


School's out and most children are buzzing about the excitement summer brings.  But for the 1 in 3 children who rely on school meals in our region, summer can bring long days filled with hunger.  Thankfully, they have the support of many community organizations and schools that continue to provide meals to children during the summer.   Second Harvest Food Bank has developed a lists of the summer meal sites open to youth 18 and under in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.  Any child can be served a meal at these open sites, no questions asked, whether or not they are registered in the program where the meal site is located.  The summer meal program is for children only, not adults, due to State/Federal requirements.  Your help spreading the word about the availability of these free meals for children in need is appreciated!  Locally,  the following sites are providing meals during the following schedule: 

  • Henry Ford School: 2498 Massachusetts, Redwood City, 7/2-7/27 (closed 7/4), Breakfast 7:00am-8:20am, Lunch 10:00am-10:35am

Knowing ppl who work in the schools, it's interesting how many "hungry" kids have professional manicures and season passes to Great America.....also with an alternative tax number if no social security number in hand----many Redwood City families claim dependents for $1000 tax "refund". Many claim kids not even in this country..... Gotta love the scam. Also, has second harvest finally put their signs in English, too? True hunger can be a native born.
