New Jersey Department of Agriculture Douglas Fisher noted that these meals are available to every child in New Jersey. Summer meal sites are places where children and youth, age 18 and under, can receive meals at no cost in a safe environment. The meals are also available to persons over age 18 with mental or physical disabilities. For locations, dates, and times the meals are provided by participating schools who operate open sites can be on the USDA Food and Nutrition website.
