City Launches Boston Summer Eats Program, Providing Free, Healthy Meals to Youth

The Boston Summer Eats Program, which provides free, healthy meals to youth, was launched by the city on July 10 at the Anna M. Cole Community Center in Jamaica Plain. The program is organized by the Mayor's Office of Food Access, in partnership with Project Bread, the YMCA of Greater Boston, and Boston Children's Hospital. The program is offered at more than 100 locations across Boston while providing free, healthy meals to youth ages 18 and under to "reduce food insecurity and fill the gap that occurs in nutritious food access during the summer months when school is out of session."
