Free Breakfast and Afternoon Snacks Provided for Kids Under 18 throughout Summer

Summer BreakSpot provides nutritious meals at no cost to children 18 and under while school is out for the summer.

Children can enjoy a free nutritious meal and an afternoon snack during summer break through the “Summer BreakSpot” program.  Several locations in the City of Hollywood have joined more than 3,500 supervised locations in Florida to offer breakfast, lunch or snack.

The menu varies each day and meals are served on a first-come, first served basis. A typical breakfast is a cereal, milk, and fruit or a muffin or bagel.

Lunch is typically a sandwich, chips, fruit, dessert, and drink, but it may also be a hot meal. The Summer Food Program is funded by a federal grant from the Department of Agriculture.

To find a location, visit the site finder map, text “FoodFL” to 877-877 or dial 2-1-1 when schools begin releasing for the summer break.
