Free and reduced-price meals are a mainstay in America’s public school cafeterias, and when the last bell rings for the school year, those meals leave schools and are served at public libraries, parks, churches, and other community organizations across the country. Thanks to the USDA's Summer Food Service Program, the meals continue when school is out, but fewer than 10 percent of young people who receive meals at school find those same meals during the summer. Busy schedules don’t slow down in the summer, and it can be hard for families to know when and where the meals are served, especially when that information might change.
The Range app solves this problem, locating where free meals for school-aged youth are served during the summer months. Please tell people who work with youth about these resources, and encourage them to download Range, a free app that locates these free meals across the country.
