Summer Meals at The FOOD Pantry

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides nutritious meals to children age 18 or younger during the summer months. The FOOD Pantry is partnering with Milwaukee Center for Independence (MCFI) to provide pantry boxes that have seven days of breakfast and lunch for each child.

Summer Meal Pantry Boxes will be available for pick up during The FOOD Pantry's Drive-Through and Walk-Up Service Hours. Parents or Guardians can pick up for the children in their household Monday-Friday 1:00-3:00 PM, Monday 6:00-8:00 PM, or Saturday 9:30-11:30 AM.

A Pantry Box contains 7 days of breakfast and lunch including 1 gallon of fat-free milk. Each box is labeled with a menu for the week as well instructions for reheating and storing. Pantry Boxes will contain a variety of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, proteins, and milk.

This is a completely free child nutrition program through the USDA. if your child receives free meals while attending summer school or daycare program, your child is not eligible for additional meals. Families should only pick up summer meals from one location.
