Free Summer Meals

Free Summer Meals

No Kid Hungry’s summer texting hotline has a new number. You can text FOOD or COMIDA to 304-304 during the summer months to find a site near you with free meals for children 18 and younger. The old texting number, 877-877, is being phased out and currently instructs individuals to text 304-304 instead.

To find free meals, families can also call (800) 359-2163, which is staffed by the Illinois Hunger Coalition. Or they can visit SummerMealsIllinois.org, where you can use the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Meals Site Finder.
