Summer Food Service Program Program Overview: Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition end. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school. Children ages 1 through 18 may receive free meals and snacks through SFSP. Meals and snacks also are available to individuals with disabilities through age 21 who participate in a recognized school program for individuals with developmental or physical disabilities. The SFSP was created to ensure that children in low-income areas can continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunches or breakfasts. But, although millions of children depend on nutritious, free and reduced-price meals and snacks at schools during nine months of the year, just a fraction of that number receive the free meals provided by the SFSP during the summer months. Locally, the SFSP is run by approved sponsors, including school districts, local government agencies, camps and private nonprofit organizations. Sponsors provide free meals to a group of children at a central site, such as a school or community center. The sponsor receives payments from USDA, through ODE, for the meals served to children that meet program guidelines. Your closest Summer Food Service Program can be found at:
