Free summer meals for kids available in Liberty

Nearly 30 million children participate in USDA’s school breakfast and lunch programs on an average school day. When school is out for the summer, kids lose access to these healthy meals, but they still need nutritious food to grow healthy and strong.

This year, New York is offering new summer nutrition options to help our children reach their full potential.

With SUN Meals, kids 18 and under can get free meals and snacks at schools, parks and other group meal locations. And the new SUN Bucks helps families stretch grocery budgets with a $120 grocery benefit for each eligible school-aged child. More information on the summer EBT program is available at https://otda.ny.gov/programs/summer-ebt/
