Free eats for kids

Summer can be a tough time for food-insecure children. 

In fact, nearly half a million children, ages birth to 18, are at risk of hunger in Minnesota.

Fortunately, Summer Eats Minnesota, a free mobile app, is in its third summer of operation, helping kids find free meals at neighborhood sites, offering breakfast, lunch, snacks and/or dinners through August.

The GPS-enabled app offers easy information about free meal sites and food truck stops, including hours of operation, menu options and even driving directions.
