Summer Meal Programs

Through the Summer Food Service Program, CPS will continue to offer a variety of nutritious meals to anyone age 18 and younger throughout the summer. Meal kits containing 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches will be available at over 270 locations throughout the city. Children do not need to be present and families can take meal kits home. The summer meal distribution schedule is Monday-Friday, 9:00am-1:00pm from June 22nd-August 28th.

Food That’s In When School is Out!

The Summer Food Service Program is designed to ensure children receive nutritious meals over summer break. At CPS, all summer meal programs provide free meals inside the school to students attending summer programs as well as all children ages 1 -18 years old in the community (children do not have to be CPS students). Free breakfast and lunch are available while summer programs occur. Program duration and meal time varies per meal site.

To verify times and locations of CPS programs or to find a site near you, call the Illinois Hunger Hotline at (800)359-2163 or text FOODIL to 877877.


In addition to summer meals served indoors, CPS also offers meals at outdoor school locations throughout the entire summer through the LunchStop program. Meals are available even beyond summer school programs! The LunchStop summer meal program provides free, healthy meals across Chicago to all children ages 1 – 18 years (children do not have to be CPS students).
