Summer Food Service Program
Spacer
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides nutritious meals and snacks to children during the summer months. This federally funded food service program helps children who live in eligible areas receive the same high quality meals during the summer as they get during the school year. Local sponsors oversee the production and distribution of meals to children at sites such as schools, churches, parks, and playgrounds. Organizations which quality as sponsors receive funds to pay for meals and snacks for children. They also receive training and technical assistance to help start and operate the program.

In order to become a sponsor, you must complete an application, attend sponsor training (usually held in March), and ensure your organization can manage the program effectively. A sponsor also needs: Kids; children 18 years old and under can receive summer meals. Also, disabled persons participating in state educational programs for the mentally or physically disabled can receive meals. Meal Sites: Meal sites are approved as “eligible” during the application process. The sites are usually parks, schools, playgrounds, gymnasiums, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, or day camps. Staff: Employees are needed to manage the meal sites, to prepare the meals, and to manage the administrative portion of the Summer Program. Bookkeeper: The bookkeeper compiles financial and administrative records to comply with the regulations of the program. Management: When the SFSP is well-organized, it is easier to manage. The administrative staff must be willing to coordinate and communicate with their program staff and with State Agency staff in order to receive technical assistance and support if needed.
