Free & Healthy Breakfast, Lunch & Supper Meals for Kids!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, food insecurity expands beyond low-income Angelenos, striking 1 in 4 L.A. County households, ultimately leaving far too many children hungry. Since the beginning of the pandemic in March, KIPP SoCal Public Schools partnered with healthy school meal provider Revolution Foods, non-profit meal sponsor Our Little Helpers, and San Diego Unified School District. Together, we have served over one million meals to local families in efforts to combat the hunger crisis across Southern California.

KIPP SoCal will continue providing, free meals to families for the remainder of the school year. Most importantly, any child under the age of 18, will continue to receive nutritious meals, free of charge, to help them learn and lead fulfilling lives. Meals can be received at any of our 17 Grab-&-Go School Sites on Tuesdays & Thursdays, details below.
