Summer Meal Program Provides Food for Children in Need

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), also known as the Summer Meal Program, was established to ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. When school is out, SFSP provides free meals to kids and teens in areas of need throughout the community. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.

All children, ages 1 through 18 years, are eligible for breakfast and lunch. There is no application or registration required. Parents or guardians are able to pick up meals for children who are not present. Programs will be at the following high schools:

  • Aloha High School
  • Beaverton High School
  • Mountainside High School
  • Sunset High School
  • Southridge High School
  • Westview High School

The program will run from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Mondays through Thursdays until Thursday, August 12. Program not offered on Monday, July 5. Library staff will be visiting Beaverton, Southridge and Mountainside weekly.
