CRT’s Free Summer Food for Kids 18 and Under Kicks Off This Week in Hartford and Neighboring Towns

To help combat childhood hunger during the summer months when school is out of session, the Community Renewal Team (CRT) is proud to participate in the federally funded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) once again this summer.

CRT will deliver hundreds of meals for children each weekday to the 14 locations in the Greater Hartford area. In total, CRT will deliver more than 35,000 meals for kids this summer.

NBC Connecticut shares the details with their viewers:

Under the SFSP, nutritious meals (including Breakfast and/or Lunch, and even Supper), will be provided free of charge to children 18 years of age and under at 14 locations in Hartford, East Hartford, Enfield, Glastonbury, and Wolcott. (Additional sites in Manchester, Enfield, and Windsor Locks are “closed” locations that require registration to participate.)

Many of these summer food sites for children begin on June 21, and most will continue until mid- to late August to help ensure that children are receiving nutritious meals while school is out for the summer.
