After school meals

All children ages 1 through 18 are eligible to receive free meals. Individuals ages 19 through 21 who have been identified as having mental or physical disabilities and are following Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) through their current enrollment in educational programs also are eligible for free summer meals.

Meals are available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at these locations. Meal service locations and serving times are subject to change.

Effective June 1, the schedule and locations for meal distribution has changed. The current schedule is:
  • 1:00-1:30 p.m. - Avondale
  • 1:45-2:15 p.m. - Elmwood Place
  • 2:30-3:00 p.m. - Reading
  • 3:00-4:00 p.m. - Covedale
  • 3:00-4:00 p.m. - Deer Park
  • 4:00-4:30 p.m. - Groesbeck
  • 5:00-5:30 p.m. - Westwood

According to Feeding America, nearly 40,000 children in Hamilton County live in a food insecure household. That means one in five children are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Children facing hunger are more likely to struggle with school and exhibit behavioral problems.

This service is made possible through USDA Child Nutrition programs, in partnership with UMC Food Ministry.
