City announces start of “School’s Out Café” summer meal program for young people

Mayor Lyda Krewson announced today that the ​School’s Out Café​, the city of St. Louis’ Summer Food Service Program, will provide free breakfast and lunch to groups that have agreed to offer meals to youth this summer.

“​Even though our schools close for the summer, hunger does not take a break and we need to support families and ensure that children don’t go hungry,​”​ Krewson said.

Free meals are available to young people ages one through 18, and are being served throughout St. Louis city, as well as some St. Louis County locations.

“​The city is proud to have played an important role for more than 45 years in ensuring that young people receive nutritious meals during the summer months. I encourage every parent to take advantage of this resource for their children and I am appealing to other organizations to contact us about opening a site of their own to serve meals,​”​ Krewson said.

The 2018 ​School’s Out Café will operate Monday through Friday and at several locations on weekends, between June 4 and August 10. Free meal locations include children and youth programs, day care centers, churches, recreation centers, public park programs, YMCA’s and many other locations. To find a School’s Out Café location near your home: ​call the city Department of Human Services at (314) 657-1654, ​or find meal locations and meal times on the city of St. Louis website: ​www.stlouis-mo.gov

St. Louis Public Schools will serve youth at various summer school locations, Operation Food Search and other groups have meal site locations throughout the area: ​TEXT: 877877 ​and enter the word ​FOOD ​to search for meal sites by zip code​.

The Summer Food Service Program is an equal opportunity, federally funded program administered through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
