With more than 13 million kids experiencing food insecurity across the country, the need for meal programs after school and during the summer is critical. The Waltham Boys & Girls Club staff is committed to ensuring that all children in need in our community have access to nutritious food. Year-round, the Waltham Boys & Girls Club provides a free meal to any youth 18 years old and younger.
During the school year, the Club serves healthy snacks to its members from 2:00 PM – 3:45 PM, and dinner every weekday from 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM. Families with children18 years or younger are welcome to a free and nutritious meal. The Waltham Boys & Girls Club Family Dinner Program is critical to ensuring that no child in our program goes without dinner.
In partnerships with government and local agencies and through the generosity of the community, we are able to will prepare, package and distribute daily snacks for our members, and “grab and go” meals. All meals are homemade on site by our Food Services Team and include a protein, veggies, grain, fruit and 1% milk.
During the summer months, the Club prepares and distributes free healthy lunches throughout many sites in Waltham through their Summer Eats Program. In 2021, Waltham Boys & Girls Club distributed 31,889 meals across 11 distribution sites to the families of Waltham.

Summer Eats Food Program: When school is out, thousands of families who rely on the school meals program to help feed their children may find themselves struggling to provide nutritious meals.
To help fill the gap for these families, the Waltham Boys & Girls Club Summer Eats Program will help feed kids & teens all summer long at different locations around the city.
Summer meal sites include community centers, parks, and schools. Meals are available on a first come, first served basis and do not require registration or identification. The Waltham Boys & Girls Club will also provide free meals on-site at summer enrichment programs.
