Governor's Summer Meals Programs

Thanks to partnership and support from Governor John R. Kasich, the Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, and the Ohio Department of Education, we proudly operate three innovative summer meals programs targeting some of the most at-risk, vulnerable children in Ohio. 

The summer weekend meals program provides six kid-friendly, shelf-stable weekend meals to about 10,000 children each week for 10 weeks during the summer.

The summer rural delivery meals program provides 11 kid-friendly, shelf-stable meals to about 2,000 children each week who have transportation and access barriers that make attending other summer meals programs difficult.

The mobile farmers market program provides fresh produce and popular protein items to families with children participating in the summer weekend meals program or summer rural delivery meals program.
