The Portland Public Schools and Opportunity Alliance will be operating summer meal sites across the city of Portland this summer. Meals and times will be posted at sites and will be distributed prior to the end of school. Most sites will begin operations on June 27 and continue through mid-August.

All children 18 years and younger may receive a meal free of charge at any of these locations.

A Summer Success Picnic will kick off the summer at Deering Oaks Park on Wednesday, July 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (with a rain date of Thursday, July 14). All are invited to attend the event, which will incorporate friends, fun and food!
