Please make note that the nationwide number for the Summer Meals text service has changed. The new automated texting service which connects households to local meal sites is
(914) 342-7744. Families should text “summer meals” or a question that may contain a keyword such as “summer,” “summermeals,” or “verano” (for Spanish), to receive an automated response to resources located near an address and/or zip code. Please update any relevant promotional materials accordingly.
Also, it is important to note that USDA National Hunger Hotline number has not changed. Individuals can still call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE to speak with a representative who will find food resources such as meal sites, food banks, and other nearby social services.
