The school year officially ended for Clark County students on Monday, but the Summer Food Service Program will still provide students with free meals while school is out.

Over 276,000 students in Nevada are eligible for free and reduced lunch, meaning 60 percent of Clark County School District students would go without food without the program, the Nevada Department of Agriculture said in a news release.

Children under the age of 18 are entitled to receive the lunches from May to August.

The program works with the federal and state departments of agriculture and will ensure that hundreds of thousands of children across the state have access to free and nutritious food during the summer, said Nevada Department of Agriculture Director JJ Goicoechea.

The program’s website describes itself as federally funded and state administered, providing up to two free nutritious meals a day to children in low-income areas.

There are various locations throughout the state for food distribution over the summer, including schools, camps, parks, playgrounds, housing projects, community centers and churches.

Parents, children and teens can find a meal location near them by visiting, texting “Summer Meals” to 914-342-7744 or by calling 1-866-348-6479.
