Summer BreakSpot

More than one million children in Florida are at risk of going hungry during the summer while school is out. The Summer BreakSpot is a federally-funded program that allows communities to serve healthy meals to children and teens in low-income areas during the summer. We are looking for schools, community centers, hospitals, churches, migrant camps, parks, clinics, apartment complexes and other non-profits to join the Summer BreakSpot now to serve in Summer 2018.
