5 JP Sites: Boston Summer Eats Program Free to Youths 18 and Younger

The city's Boston Summer Eats program is offering meals at 53 sites, with 14 more coming later in the summer, with a goal of expanding access to free and healthy meals to youth and lessen the summer food gap. Meals are available to youth 18 years and younger at no cost and no registration or ID is needed. Last summer, the program served 1,894,748 meals across 91 sites in 16 neighborhoods, according to a press release. Boston Summer Eats sites can be found at boston.gov/summer-eats or find additional locations across the state by texting “Food” or “Comida” to 877-877. Hours of operation vary depending on the site.
