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, the United States Department of Agriculture plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.
