Summer food. Summer fun.

Neighborhood Food Sites

In addition to the Summer Food Program, MMSD, in partnership with Second Harvest, is serving breakfast and lunch at various school and community sites around Madison. There are also several pop-up mobile food pantries, which offer drive-thru food distribution of boxes of produce, freezer, dairy, and shelf stable dry goods. Learn more about those here.

The Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) Summer Food Program provides free meals during summer vacation.  During the school year, MMSD Food & Nutrition serves children who qualify for free or reduced price meals due to low household income.  The summer program offers children nutritious meals when school is not in session. Children can eat for free, Monday - Friday, starting June 22nd.  MMSD offers breakfast, lunch and snack. Meals vary by location. No application is required.  All sites will be closed on Friday, July 3rd.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) funds the Summer Food Program and the State of Wisconsin administers the school meal service.  All children 18 years of age and under can receive up to two free meals per site.  Sites qualify if the school in the attendance area has more than 50% free and reduced lunch enrollment, or if more than 50% of the children participating at the site qualify for free or reduced price meals
