Free Summer Lunches for Kids: 2022

Again this summer all kids ages 1-18 can get a FREE, healthy lunch at one of many locations in Ashwaubenon, De Pere, Howard and Green Bay. There is no need to sign up, register or apply–all kids are eligible and can just show up to get their lunch! This program is through The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, which provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. This program fills a void when school lunches are not available and helps parents meet the nutritional needs of their children. You can find the complete list of all locations serving summer lunches in the Green Bay Area and search your area with this link or see below for more information on these area programs.

Please note: The below list may not be comprehensive. You should check the links above for the most complete and up-to-date information. Lunch trucks at parks typically only stay for about 10 minutes, so don’t be late to pick up your lunch or you might miss out! Also, no lunches will be served on July 4th.
