Summer Meals

Many of Polk County's children go hungry during the summer while school is out. Polk County partners with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to feed children through its Summer BreaSpot nutrition program. The Summer BreakSpot program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Many children rely on School Meals for a nutritious breakfast and lunch and are at risk of suffering from hugner during summer break. The Summer BreakSpot fills the nutrition gap during the summer - meals are free to children 18 years and younger so they can return to school healthy, happy, and ready to learn.

If you offer summer programs or activities for groups of children you can apply to be a summer meals site. Breakfasts and/or Lunches are delivered right to you!

Meals will be available Thursday, May 31 - Thursday, July 26, 2018

Community Eligibility

As part of the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs, we are able too offer meals to our students at low or no cost. We are proud to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and provides healthy breakfasts and lunches each day at no charge for ALL students at qualifying schools.

Click here for the list of CEP Schools.

Students attending a CEP school do not need a free and reduced price meal application. However, please note that community eligibility does not extend to all members of a household. Only students attending participating schools will receive meals at no charge. If you have other students who attend a non-CEP school, or if your student transfers to a non-CEP school during the school year, please complete a free and reduced price meal application if you qualify.

Free and Reduced Price Meal Application

Based on household size and income, students may qualify for meals at no charge or at a reduced price. Only one application is needed per household; a new application is required each year.
