2022 Summer Food Service Program

Summer Meals for kids and teens to be provided by Springfield School District 186

As part of our efforts to ensure kids have access to healthy meals during the summer months, Springfield School District 186 is please, to announce its summer meals site will be serving kids and teens.  Starting at different dates and schools during the summer to all kids and teens 18 and under can receive meals free of charge, no registration needed.

The summer months are already one of the hungriest times of year for many kids. The need will be even greater this summer as the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic. Due to changes at the federal level, we are no longer able to offer Grab & Go, Delivery, Parent Pick-Up or Multi-Day Meals. We are dedicated to still serving children and the community.

The Summer Meals program is funded by the USDA and run by school districts and local organizations, and sites can be found throughout the community. We’re always happy to see you at one of our sites, but there may be more convenient locations closer to you. Families can text FOOD or COMIDA to 304-304 and type in a zip code to find nearby summer meals sites, along with operating days and times. No application, registration or proof of residency or citizenship is required at sites.

If you need additional information, call 1-217-525-3046.

Springfield Public School District 186 will be offering Summer Food Service at the sites, dates, and times listed below. Please note that meals will not be served on Monday, June 20, or Monday, July 4.
