Free meals for children

  • Gates Chili is proud to partner with the USDA to provide free meals for children 18 and younger each summer. This year’s program runs July 6 to Aug. 21 at Gates Chili MS (2 Spartan Way) and Paul Road Elementary School (571 Paul Road).

    Any child in the community, 18 years and younger, may get a free meal. There are no income requirements or registration and children are not required to be district residents. This program is fully-funded by the USDA, so there is no cost to district taxpayers.
