Dairy Council of California remains committed to supporting food access for families to help ensure no child goes hungry during these unprecedented times. Across California, School Nutrition Services programs are working tirelessly to provide nourishing meals to students impacted by school closures. Millions of students rely on school meals for nourishment, and while schools are closed, many children and their families living in California communities will need support and access to nutritious food.

Above is a comprehensive compilation of school nutrition program meal sites offering free meal services to children, ages 2-18, living in communities throughout California. Broken down by counties and school districts, the drop down menu options allow self-navigation to make identifying nearby sites easier to find. As new information becomes available, the listings will be updated.

We encourage all families in need to take advantage of the free meals offered. Meal service may vary by location, but all sites will provide free meals to children.
