Summer Meals Toolkit: Summer Meal Sites

Last Published: 05/22/2015

Summer meal sites are where all the hard work of the State agency, partnering organizations, and sponsors come together. A smoothly run site is something that every sponsor and site operator hopes to achieve. The key is an organized, well-supervised program that meets the goal of the summer meal program: to provide fresh, well-balanced meals that are appetizing to children. This section of the toolkit includes resources for site operators, including general information about the program, how to develop a strong relationship with the sponsor, and how to share resources and best practices.

USDA and its recipient institutions share responsibility for compliance and oversight to ensure good stewardship of Federal funds.
