Summer Meal Service Map: Each year, the CDE’s Nutrition Services Division posts locations on the CDE Summer Meal Service Sites Web page at

Summer Meal HomePage

Parents can call site directors listed under the 2012 Summer Feeding Map to determine if meals will be served at the same locations in 2013. The CDE will post 2013 summer meal sites as soon as this information is available (usually during the month of June) and will refresh the information as new sites are approved to participate. Remind households that they can continue to check this Web page for updates.

Hunger Hotline: The CDE also shares our Summer Meal Service site information on the WhyHunger Find Food Web page at
