Free breakfasts and lunches ALL SUMMER at Laveen schools

School might be out, but Laveen schools are serving FREE breakfast and lunch to all kids all summer! In addition, both our local high schools, Cesar Chavez and Betty Fairfax are part of a similar program in the Phoenix Union High School District.

Children 18 years and younger may join us throughout the summer for nutritious breakfast and lunch. All kids’ meals are free at specific Laveen Elementary School district schools. There are no income requirements and you do not need to register. Children do not need to be enrolled in a Laveen school to participate. The summer meal program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
