East Baton Rouge Parish has multiple sponsors who implement the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Summer Food Service Program. As an eligible community, every child from age 0-18 can receive healthy meals through the Summer Feeding Program paid for by USDA. There is no paperwork or eligibility criteria for this program.
Several Healthy BR partners operate open summer feeding sites where any child or teen in the neighborhood can come in and receive a meal. Most open sites serve breakfast and lunch. Please refer to your local site for more information about dates and times of operation. View all Summer Food Service Program sites here.
