Project Bread

With the help of our community partners and policy makers, Project Bread promotes the summer meals program, Summer Eats, to serve free meals to kids and teens while school meals are on summer vacation.

  • The Summer Food Service Program, known as Summer Eats in Massachusetts, is a vital resource for the more than 400,000 children across the state who qualify for free or reduced-price school meals during the school year.
  • The meals and program provided at Summer Eats sites helps to ensure that children have continued access to nutritious food during the summer months and can return to school healthy and ready to learn.
  • Summer hunger can lead to learning loss & weight gain, putting low income youth at a disadvantage when they return to school in the fall.
