East Hartford, CT- CT Summer Meals, a USDA federally-funded program administered by the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE), provides no cost nutritious breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks to children 18-years of age and younger, no questions asked.

Following last year’s model, many sites have the added flexibilities to improve access to meals, including: allowing parents and guardians to pick up meals; offering multiple meals (breakfast and lunch, or meals for multiple days) during one pick-up; and allowing those meals to be consumed off-site. Many sites will operate through late August.

All children age 18-and-under can receive free meals at over 400 sites throughout the State. End Hunger Connecticut! (EHC!)’s Meal Locator Map, which allows residents to find a site closest to them, is now live and operated in partnership with the CSDE.

Summer meal sites can be located via EHC!’s Locator Map at
