Connecting Kids with Nutritious Food When School's Out
Program Fact Sheet
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally funded, state-administered program. USDA reimburses program operators who serve no-cost, healthy meals and snacks to children and teens. Meals are served at summer sites in low-income communities, where sponsors often also offer enrichment activities, or — in approved rural communities facing access issues — may be provided via grab-n-go or delivery.
