No child goes hungry in Colorado, even in the summer. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is offering FREE breakfast and lunch to ALL children this summer, helping kids thrive year round. Nutritious meals for children and teenagers 18 and younger are available at more than 100 locations in our area. No application is required to receive food --- simply come during meal times to receive a meal. 

Some locations even offer fun activities for kids and families.
