Summer Food Service Program

About the SFSP

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 of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) 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.
