Summer Meals Available for Chicago Public Schools Students

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Chicago Public Schools (CPS) launched its summer meal programs next week to ensure students continue to have access to free, nutritious meals during the summer months. The summer meals and LunchStop programs will be offered at hundreds of school locations throughout the District, including all summer program locations. Meals will be available at outdoor LunchStop locations across the District. Indoor meals are available based on when individual schools host their summer programs on varying dates. Students who participate in summer programs, or who live in the area served by the summer program, will be able to access free meals – both breakfast and lunch – at their summer program site throughout the summer. LunchStop will be offered at outdoor locations throughout the District. Children must be present to receive a meal and will need to consume the meal onsite. The LunchStop schedule is Monday – Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from June 24 to August 9. Parents and students can also call (800) 359-2163 or text ‘FOOD’ or ‘COMIDA’ to 304-304 to find nearby summer meals sites, along with operating days and times.  For additional information regarding Nutrition Support Services programming, please visit the District’s Nutrition website.
