Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) Fact Sheets

The Summer Food Service Program, also known as the Summer Meals 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 low-income areas. The fact sheets (in English or Spanish) provides information about how SFSP works and what you can do to participate in Summer Meals.
