THE PROGRAM SERVES OVER 7,000 MEALS TO HUNDREDS OF BURLINGTON CHILDREN!

This is a drop-in style recreation program that takes place at multiple sites across the city. There are no fees or enrollment required and all staff-led activities are FREE. The Burlington Summer Meals Program provides free lunch and snack for kids Mon-Fri. We believe a comprehensive approach to creating food and recreation opportunities for the kids in our city is imperative to creating a happy and healthy community. In response, we not only offer the same meals that children receive at school, but we are also offering nutrition education, fitness activities and opportunities to garden.

This program is much more than just providing meals.... “While providing meals and activities for the kids I have been able to make connections with youth and watch them flourish as well as make great relationships with families. Our meals portion is a great aspect of our program. It truly helps strengthen the community of youth in the program; whether that be walking to Roosevelt park for dinner or sitting at the picnic table for lunch. Combining our food portion with programming has been tremendously important because then there is no singling out who depended on the meal due to food insecurity and who didn’t. It truly keeps our program inclusive and respectful of all different family situations. With everything going on in the world we were able to have a great summer and made so many memories.” Written by Marissa, Rec & Nutrition Counselor 2020
