Range is a free mobile app that locates the time and place where free meals are served to youth this summer and where families can find the nearest public library. Download Range to locate the nearest sites and get directions, share information via text or email, and learn about key services the site offers.

*Update 6/3/15: Range is useful during the summer months only (May-August).

During the school year, youth are served meals at the school cafeteria, but during the summer months only 1 in 6 who eat lunch at school take advantage of free programs when school is out. If you work with youth or interact with families in need, use Range to increase visibility to the neighborhood sites that provide this crucial service. Summer meal programs provide free meals to youth 18 and under in your community when school is out.Tell others about Range —librarians, clergy, social workers, physicians, parks and rec counselors—and how they can help families find free meals this summer.

As part of providing services to youth, Range also locates all public libraries in the U.S. Refer youth and families to public libraries for programs, a good book, and a safe place.

Data from USDA powers Range to locate reliable sources of healthy and free meals, and data from IMLS census data locates public libraries.

Incomplete Project

As a social worker who regularly refers my clients to school meal sites, I can say this is not a great resource right now. Lots of states and cities are missing. Basic but critical details such as dates of operation are missing for sites that are listed. Great idea, but data needs to be complete or else families will end up using valuable time and resources to get to sites that may not be open/operating. I hope to see improvements with time. Other than missing data, I found the app easy to navigate.

Really grateful!

Hello friends!
Just installed the app and will be following up next week with a longer report. The timing of this couldn't be better because schools in Charleston, SC, are just ending for the year. So many times people call our food pantry looking for cooked food and we don't have many options. Now we will really be able to help. Many, many thanks!
