Overview

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally assisted meal program that provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need throughout the summer months when they are out of school. Sponsors provide free meals to a group of children at a central site, such as a school, park, low-income housing complex, community center, or camp. They receive cash subsidies from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for each meal and snack they serve and for their documented administrative and operating costs. Sponsors may also receive donated commodities from the USDA.
