This past summer we began our work outside of New Orleans by launching our Summer Meals initiative in Tangipahoa Parish - a parish of 9 cities and separate governing bodies, that all successfully came together for the first time on an initiative to benefit the children of the entire parish. We are working toward expanding that work in several parishes in central and northern Louisiana this summer. We are looking forward to doing the work that will bring increased breakfast participation and summer meals to kids throughout the state.
We are already preparing for this summer. This year our target areas are Jefferson Parish and Lafayette. In these areas we will assist sites and sponsors in providing free breakfast and lunch to kids. Summer Meals Grant applications are now availble and the deadline to apply is March 28, 2018.
We are looking forward to this year's Summer Kickoff event, which will include a bounce house, arts & crafts, a sack race, and other fun games for the kids.

Meals will be served Monday-Friday, with different locations and time. For more info on eligible camp sites and where meals will be served text “Food” to 877-877 or call
