The Portland Public Schools will be operating various summer meal sites across the city of Portland this summer. Meals and times will be posted at sites, and maps have been distributed to students at school and are posted online

New this year is a neighborhood truck route. This Food Service Truck will be delivering to 10 stops daily, M-F, in local neighborhoods. The truck will operate June 21- August 20. School sites will begin operation on June 28 and continue through July 29, and some through August 13, Monday-Thursday. Here’s a map of sites and the food truck route.

All children and teens 18 years and younger may receive a meal free of charge, on a first-come, first-serve basis, at any of the meal site locations. There will be no meal service on Monday, July 5th.

To get more information about sites and times, you may dial 2-1-1, text “Summer Meals” to 97779, or go online to http://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks or go to: https://www.portlandschools.org/departments/operations/food_service/free_summer_meals
