PROVIDING MEALS AND SNACKS TO YOUTH DURING THE SUMMER
Summer means children are out of school and no longer receiving nutritious school lunches. To help bridge the summer meal gap, the USDA developed the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) to feed children when school is out for the summer. The program is designed to be easy to administer for any summer program, and we’re here to help you understand it all!
Eligibility Requirements for the Summer Food Service Program
To be eligible for the Summer Food Service Program, your program must be located in an at-risk area. The USDA requires your site to be area eligible or more than 50% of the children in your summer program to be considered at-risk.
