Summer BreakSpot Program open to students in Lee County

The School District of Lee County is again partnering with Florida’s Summer BreakSpot program to keep children healthy and well-nourished while school is out. The Summer BreakSpot Program allows the District’s Food and Nutrition Services Department to provide free meals to children who are 18 years and younger at no cost to them during the summer. From June 5 to July 31, breakfast and lunch will be served at more than 100 school-based and community sites in Lee County.

There are no income requirements or registration. Anyone age 18 or younger may come to eat. Meals must be consumed on-site. New this summer, eight sites will be serving grab-and-go meals. At these locations, the child does not need to be present and the meal does not have to be eaten on-site. Monday through Thursday breakfast and lunch will be provided. On Fridays, a three-day meal kit will be provided so a child can also have breakfast and lunch over the weekend.

The eight sites providing this grab-and-go service are:

  • Buckingham Community Park – Fort Myers
  • Harns Marsh Middle School – Lehigh Acres
  • Palms at Pine Island – Pine Island
  • Phillips Park – Pine Island
  • All Saints Byzantine Catholic Church – North Fort Myers
  • Alva Community Park- Alva
  • Olga Baptist Church – Alva
  • Summit Church – Gateway (starts June 17)

There are three ways to find a Summer BreakSpot site and serving times for breakfast and lunch: Dial 2-1-1, Text “Food” to 304-304 or visit

Last summer, the Lee County School District served more than 212,000 breakfast, lunch, and snack meals through this program.
