Summer Meals Toolkit: Summer Meal Sponsors

Last Published: 06/02/2016

Sponsors are at the heart of the USDA summer meal programs. While responsible for the operation of summer meal sites, sponsors also must ensure access to meals is available and known to eligible children in their communities. This section of the toolkit includes resources to help sponsors operate a robust program. This includes information on meal planning, partner collaboration, vendor relations, and food safety as well as 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.
