Gwinnett County's Summer Meals Program has expanded once more to help ease hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing to feed Gwinnett's children during the summer.

Gwinnett County's program provides free grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches for children 18 years old and younger. Parents can pick up nutritious meals for their children at 33 park and library locations around the county to take home, or the children can pick up their own meals. The meals meet USDA guidelines.

Meals are also available for adults 19 years of age and older with physical or mental disabilities and enrolled in a school-based program.

Gwinnett County's program, now in its second year, has served 181,498 meals since May 18. Last year, children ate lunches and snacks onsite, but because of social distancing requirements, the USDA is allowing people to take the meals home this year.

Registration is not required. Meals can be picked up between 11:00am and 1:00pm while supplies last at:


In addition, the Five Forks Branch Library at 2780 Five Forks-Trickum Road in Lawrenceville and the Buford-Sugar Hill Branch Library at 2100 Buford Highway in Buford will serve meals as part of the program starting Monday, July 6.

The County program, part of the Summer Food Service Program offered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is sponsored by the nonprofit Georgia Nutritional Services Inc., which will provide the vendor for the meals. Funding for the program comes from the USDA.

Emergency meal kits and information is also made available at each of the summer meals sites for residents ages 60 and older who need assistance with hunger, health, or mobility issues.
