As schools enter into summer break, some families may be left wondering how they will properly feed their children. Summer BreakSpot is a federally funded program established to fill the summer hunger gap, allowing organizations to serve healthy meals to children in Florida while school is on summer break. Sites can serve up to two meals per day and are provided at no cost to children 18 and under.
Meal sites are located in schools, parks, libraries, and churches, and offer breakfasts, lunches, snacks or supper. There are sites available for Osceola County including 31 sites in Kissimmee, 9 sites in St. Cloud, 13 sites in Poinciana. The meal site locator allows you to type in your city and the map will provide the sites available within 5 miles of your location. Once you find the location of the site on the map, click the location’s name and information will be provided on which times and dates the meals will be available.
According to the Summer BreakSpot website, “At almost all sites, there is no application necessary and any child 18 or younger can simply come during meal times to receive a meal.”
To find a location near you follow the following steps:
- Visit the meal site locator
- Text “FoodFL” to 877-877
- Or Dial 2-1-1 when schools begin releasing.
Summer BreakSpot is making a Positive Difference in Osceola County by ensuring that every child in Florida has healthy food to eat during the summer break. For more information visit SummerBreakSpot.org.
