ATTENTION: We are no longer offering Summer Meals Support Fund grants. See information below on how to start up a summer meal site in your community

In 2020 we shifted from our usual summer meal grant program to emergency support grants. In 2021 we made the decision to end the grant program and to instead focus our resources on policy and administrative advocacy to ensure that programs for summer and school meals are well funded and flexible in providing as much access for kids as possible.

Visit the Oregon Department of Education’s website to learn more about starting up, or improving, a summer meal site in your community.

You can also learn about Start Up and Expansion Grants for summer meal and afterschool meal programs on the Oregon Department of Education Website.
