2020 Summer Food Service Program

Summer Food Program Icon

Bernalillo County’s 2020 Summer Lunch Program is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, May 27 at 22 locations across the county.

The community centers, parks, and county facilities will be serving breakfast and lunch five days per week until Aug. 5.

The 22 county summer lunch locations are outside Albuquerque city limits in unincorporated parts of Bernalillo County, including the South and North valleys, East Mountains, and Paradise Hills. The number of locations this year has been reduced due to coronavirus (COVID 19).

No registration is required for the program and each breakfast and lunch will be served on a grab-n-go basis. Parents can drive-thru at each location and every child in the car will receive a breakfast and/or lunch.

Bernalillo County’s summer food service program has served thousands of free and nutritious meals for more than 30 years. 

Bernalillo County’s Summer Lunch Program is funded by a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant administered by the state Children, Youth and Families Department.

The meals are prepared at the Albuquerque Public Schools central kitchen, and delivered to sites around the county.

“Without this program many kids of Bernalillo County would likely go without a healthy meal, every day throughout the summer,” says County Commission Chair Lonnie Talbert. “Bernalillo County is supporting our kids and making sure we give them a leg up in the summer months.”

Feel free to contact us at (505) 314-0430 or (505) 314-0425 with questions.

Program Rules

  1. Participants must be one to 18 years of age to receive a meal.
  2. Meals or individual food items cannot be taken from the site.
  3. Participants must receive an entire meal, including milk.
  4. All meals will be served on a first come, first served basis.
