USDA Summer Food Service Site Information
Summer is here, and just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child’s need for good nutrition. Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. The good news is that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is partnering with organizations in our area to provide free meals through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This program provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to families, to help children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months.
Are you a parent or guardian looking for SFSP sites near you? You can find a summer site with the Summer Meal Site Finder mapping tool. You can text "SUMMER MEALS" or text "FOOD" or "COMIDA" to 97779 or you may call 1-866-3HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479)
