Free 2024 Summer Meals and Recreation Activities 

This summer, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seattle Human Services Department, and United Way of King County are partnering to host a drop-in summer program offering FREE meals and recreation activities. The meals and recreation program will run daily from July 1 to August 23 from 10am to 4pm rain or shine at 13 park sites across Seattle 

A free lunch and snack will be offered to youth ages 0 to 18. Free recreation activities are open for kids and teens ages 5 to 18 and may include arts, crafts, board games, and organized recreational games.   

No fee, sign-up, or proof of identity or legal status is required to receive summer meals.  

Federal program rules require kids and teens to be present to receive a meal and meals need to be eaten on-site. Parents and guardians are no longer able to pick up meals on behalf of their children.  

Seattle Parks and Recreation is #ParkProud to help ensure that children have access to healthy meals during the week even when school is out, as well as to enriching activities and a safe space.
