• Summer BreakSpot

    Free meals for Kids and Teens, 18 and younger

    Food and Nutrition Services department is preparing to feed students across the county again this summer.  For 15 years, the Summer BreakSpot program has been helping provide nourishment for Manatee County children during the long summer months. This program provides free meals for kids and teens at multiple locations starting on May 31, 2022.

    Free meals will be provided to students attending School District of Manatee school summer programs as well as be delivered to local sites such as summer camps, community centers and churches. Three mobile feeding buses and two mobile “Caboose” food vehicles (provided in partnership with Tropicana), will deliver meals to multiple locations in Bradenton, Palmetto and Parrish. Both buses have indoor and outdoor seating for kids to enjoy their meal in the comfort of air conditioning. It is a great opportunity for kids to get outside for some sunshine, socializing and a healthy meal. Meals are required to be consumed on-site.
