Beginning today and running through August 21 (unless otherwise noted), free summer meals — breakfast and lunch — are back for another season of keeping all New York City kids healthy and happy, regardless of income, even when there is no school in session, and even if their parents are away at work during the day.
All children aged 18 and under are eligible, no registration, documentation, or ID required.
Participating sites include dozens of community pool centers, schools, libraries, parks, public housing buildings, beaches, and other community gathering spaces, including several here in Bensonhurst.
Here are a few free meal sites in our area:
