Parts of this memorandum have been rescinded by SFSP 01-2019: Summer Food Service Program Memoranda Rescission, October 11, 2018. Rescinded policy has been struck through.

Organizations currently participating in the at-risk afterschool meals component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program are well-positioned to offer summer meals. Although CACFP at-risk afterschool meals may not be served during the summer months, these organizations may be eligible to serve summer meals through the Summer Food Service Program or the Seamless Summer Option under the National School Lunch Program. This memorandum highlights existing flexibilities available to CACFP institutions to simplify their participation in SFSP.
