Summer Eats

JUNETEENTH UPDATES: On Monday, June 21, all Boston Housing Authority and Boston Centers for Youth & Families sites will be closed. All Boston Public Schools sites will open from 2 - 6 p.m., and YMCA East Boston, Dorchester, and Egleston will open during regular hours.

Boston Summer Eats provides nutritious breakfast and lunch at no cost to youth 18 and under. No ID or registration required. 

The Summer Eats program is an innovative effort to lessen the summer food gap by increasing the availability of non-traditional meal sites. The goal of the program is to expand access to free and healthy meals for kids and teens in Boston. 

Organizations interested in becoming a meal site should complete our online form. If you have questions or want to learn more about the program, call 617-635-3717 or email food@boston.gov.
