Auburn’s USDA-supported Summer Food Service Program is an important part of the community, feeding hundreds of children who otherwise would not have access to daily nutritious meals.

The Summer Food Program offers free meals to children, ages 1-18, during July and August.

The program – provided by the USDA in partnership with the Auburn School District – offers healthy, well-balanced meals to children every weekday.

If you are over the age of 18, and could benefit from free meals, there are several options in and around Auburn.

Each year sites are reviewed to ensure that the program is serving children in areas most in need.

Meals are free to children with no registration required.

Parents/guardians are welcome to purchase a meal for $4 and eat with their children.

For more information, call 253-931-4972 or email childnutrition@auburn.wednet.edu.

For locations and times are available online.
