Children’s Summer Food Program open for registration

The Children’s Summer Food Program is now open for registration for families who need help accessing healthy meals for children this summer.

Precooked, frozen meals that can be reheated are available throughout July and August for Island families with school-aged children. Registration is required and meals will be delivered to all areas of the province. 

“Ensuring that children have access to healthy and nutritious food is vital for their health and wellbeing. This program supports families throughout the summer while school is on break and the School Food Program is not running. We know there are Island families struggling to put food on the table in this time of high food prices, and this program is an important part of promoting equitable access to food.”

- Social Development and Seniors Minister Barb Ramsay

The program begins July 3, 2024 and runs until August 28, 2024. Meals will be delivered every Wednesday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Each registered child will receive seven meals. Someone must be present at the address to accept the meal delivery. Meals will not be left unattended for food safety reasons.
