Free SUMMER MEALS PROGRAM
Breakfast & Lunch for Kids & Teens

Vision: Ensure that children of Schenectady receive a nutritious meal during the summer.

The Summer Meals Program ensures youth 18 and younger have nutritious breakfasts and lunches during the summer months, June 25, 2018 to August 31, 2018. Approximately 40,000 lunches and 11,000 breakfasts were served last year.

This FREE program is offered at parks, community centers, churches and other sites around Schenectady County.

Teams of SiCM staff, interns, and volunteers – over 1,200 people - help to staff the meal sites. We need volunteers - individuals, families and groups - to make this program a success!

Change the world.
One community garden at a time.

Those aren't just potatoes in Edulia and Gregorio Vaquera-GaJarza's hands ... They are the instruments of social and economic prosperity.

Before, the farmers in their indigenous community in Bolivia barely survived on a diet of boiled corn. Their children were weak from malnutrition.

Today they grow an ample supply of nutritious fruits and vegetables in a community garden. They harvest enough food to feed their families and a surplus to sell in the market With the income they make, they are able to purchase protein to supplement their diet and buy more seeds for the garden.

Through the CROP Hunger Walk, you are there, investing in Edulia and Gregorio and their smiles are thanks to you!

Just last year, 50,217 global neighbors like Edulla and Gregorio were provided stable sources of nutritious food.

795 million more people in this world are waiting for your help.
