    Kids Under 18 Eat for Free! Summer Meals logos

    There are so many wonderful things to experience in the summertime!
    Hunger does NOT have to be one of them!

    Orange County Schools will offer Summer Meals from now through July 28th!

    ANY student under the age of 18 can eat a FREE breakfast and lunch this summer. This opportunity is open to all children. No registration is required; however, we kindly request advanced notice to ensure we can adequately accommodate everyone as meals are first come, first served.
