Summer Food for Kids: June – August

We can help with extra food during the summer months. Families can come in once per month and receive a variety of items that may include deli and canned meat, bread or tortillas, yogurt, granola bars, cheese sticks or slices, peanut butter, cereal, milk, canned or boxed meals(macaroni & cheese, Ramen, spaghetti), fresh produce.


Families who live in Eden Prairie or Chanhassen, have a K-12 student, and are in need of extra food for the summer.

  • Children do not have to come in to be eligible.
  • Families do not have to take part in our Food Shelf Program.
  • Families may receive regular monthly Food Shelf and Summer Food for Kids groceries at the same time.

Summer Food for Kids packs will be available June 2017.
