Summer Food Fun

New Name, Same Great Service!

Summer Food Service Program will be offered by CAC all across the Knoxville and Knox County area again this year, but this time it will be under a new name and with a sunny new logo. Now called the Summer Nutrition Programs for Kids, or SUN Programs, to better reflect the broader, brigher impact USDA’s Summer Nutriton Programs will have on kids across the nation, helping them thrive during summer and beyond.

Select the button below to view a list of all participating sites and their schedules in the Knoxville and Knox County vicinity. Meals will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Please confirm meal service times with sites, as they are subject to change.
