Free Summer Meals for Hungry Children


Now that school is out for the summer, children in Marietta and Cobb County schools will still have a chance to get at least two square meals a day. Starting Monday, free breakfast and lunch to children 18 years or younger throughout June and July will be provided by Marietta City Schools and the Cobb County School District.

No registration or income threshold is required to receive meals. Marietta schools will provide daily meal options, as well as seven-day breakfast and lunch meal kits, to participating students. To find the list of Marietta’s 20 locations and dates and times when meals will be provided, click here to visit the district’s website. Parents and their children can pick up seven-day meal packages at the locations marked with an asterisk.

The Cobb County School District will give out weekly meal kits from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Wednesdays in June and July at Clarkdale Elementary, Harmony Leland Elementary, King Springs Elementary, Daniell Middle, Smitha Middle and North Cobb High schools. More details about the menus and dates of distribution can be found on the Cobb School Nutrition Department’s website.
