Summer Food Service Program

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) serves healthy meals and snacks during the summer months when school meals are not available.

During the school year, meals are served through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, but these programs end when school ends. Since hunger doesn't take a summer vacation, the SFSP helps fill the hunger gap.

The program is sponsored by school districts, local government agencies, camps, or public/private nonprofit organizations. Many meal sites also have games and reading activities to build healthy bodies and minds. The SFSP helps our children return to school in the fall ready to learn.
