Sioux Falls Free Summer Lunch Program

School Lunch

When school gets out for the summer some kids lose easy access to a good lunch. In order to make sure that no kid in Sioux Falls goes hungry, we have the Free Summer Lunch Program.

Any child ages 1 to 18 can participate at 8 school locations across the city. There are also four additional community locations. Lunch will be provided at all locations and breakfast provided at some of the locations.  All students are welcome, there is no paperwork and no income eligibility. All one has to do is show up at one of the sites during the selected time and the child will eat free.

In addition to serving lunch, kids can also get backpacks to help with food needs throughout the weekend. A bag can be picked-up at one of the locations on Fridays.

A new pilot program will deliver additional 500 backpacks via a mobile food truck that will make stops in assigned areas each week.

People can find out more about any of these programs by calling 211.
