Summer Food Service Program

During the school year, nutritious meals are available to students through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP); however, these programs are not administered throughout summer, when schools are not in session.   The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federal program made available to eligible areas and children to ensure that children receive nutritious meals throughout the year.  This program merges summer activity programs with a federal meal reimbursement program.
