Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in season.  Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children 18 years and younger at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children.  Families can use any of the following methods to locate sites that where free meals to children during the summer.
