Free Summer Meals for Kids

HIPThe Washington State Summer Food Service Program, or Summer Meals, provides free meals and snacks to all children and teens (18 years and younger) during the summer months.

Each summer, one in four kids and teens in Washington, who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year, look forward to three months without meal support. Hunger Intervention Program’s Summer Meals for Kids provides freshly made, nutritious lunches from the HIP kitchen at kid-friendly locations around the north Seattle community. HIP partners with other community organizations to offer activities at meal sites to encourage participation all summer long.


  • With access to a daily meal, families can stretch their food budgets.
  • Kids can also engage in summer reading, games and crafts.
