2022 Summer Meals


The Summer Meals Program is designed to offer a nutritious meal to students enrolled in a summer program operating in an approved School District of Philadelphia Building.

Information for Summer Programs

What programs can participate in the Summer Meals Service?

If your program meets the requirements below, you are eligible to participate:

  • The program is approved to operate in the district site(s) in which they intend to register for meal service.
  • The program runs between June 27, 2022 and August 12, 2022

Please note that once meals service starts, requests to increase or decrease the number of meals delivered to your location take three working days ( 72 hours)  to be adjusted in our computer and routing system.  We can not accommodate next-day requests.

Also, If your program doesn’t meet minimum meal participation requirements, summer programming staff will be responsible for distributing meals and must complete the required training. (Additional information and guidance provided in the Administrative Guidelines for Summer Programs.)

2022 Application for Summer Meal Service

If your program meets the eligibility requirements listed above, follow the steps below to apply.

1. Complete the 2022 application. Applications for summer meals must be received by June 3, 2022.  If you provide information after this day, we can not guarantee food on the first day of your program and we will do our very best to service your students as soon as we are able.

Click here to complete the summer meals application. Partially completed applications will cause delays in processing. The application includes a training confirmation that verifies the Program Coordinator understands the regulations and guidelines of the Summer Program. You will be prompted to review and verify you have read the program and training information on the third page of the application. Complete ONE application per program per year. If you only need to update the roster of students go to step 2.

If you have an issue with the Summer Program application email foodsetup@philasd.org.

2. Upload the roster of students. 

Scroll below to upload the summer program roster. An accurate listing of students must be provided. Include a FIRST and LAST NAME.  After submitting your online application, immediately upload the roster.
