Free Summer Meals

Indiana SUN Bucks is a benefits program that provides families $120 for each eligible school-aged child to buy groceries when school is out. Summer is a time when many children lose the free and reduced-price meals they get at school, and when households might need a little extra help putting meals on the table. Most eligible families will get these benefits automatically, but some parents will need to apply. This program is available in addition to free meals that kids of all ages can get at summer meal sites in their communities.  Visit the Indiana SUN Bucks webpage for more information.
