Summer Food Fuel Up Grab-and-Go Meals (Breakfast & Lunch for children) via Hillsborough County Schools:

The following information was provided by their website:
“Kids and teens can still get free balanced meals this summer while schools are closed! Our summer feeding program will provide grab and go meals on Mondays – Thursdays from June 8 – July 30 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm at select sites throughout the district. Each child will receive a lunch for that day and breakfast for the next day. On Thursdays, each child will receive meals for both Thursday and Friday.

Children do not have to be present to receive a meal; however, parents need to bring a student ID number (for enrolled HCPS students) or date of birth for children who are not enrolled.

Meals are available for all children ages 18 and under; and 21 and under for children with special needs.”
