Free Summer Food

Children can enjoy free healthy meals throughout the summer

CRT will once again administer a free Summer Food Service Program for school-age children (5 – 18 years old) at locations in Hartford and neighboring towns this summer. This important program provides free breakfast and/or lunches to students during the critical summer months when school is not in session, and children are missing out on access to school-time meals. Dates and times are listed below at open sites that do not require preregistration.

CRT food assistance programs feed many children in Connecticut every summer. We welcome new host sites.

For more information, please contact Program Manager Kathleen Hutter at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 860-560-5634.

Fun supervised activities and crafts are offered at some sites.

“With the kids home for the summer, we don’t have enough money or food stamps to buy all of what they need to eat. I don’t know what I would do without the CRT lunch for my kids.”
