Overview

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free meals to low-income children during school vacations. More than 26 million children eat school lunch every day when school is in session, and about half of them receive their meals free or at a reduced price due to low household income. The summer program offers those children nutritious food when school is not in session. During Summer 2012, Wisconsin served 2.4 million meals at 728 sites operated by 177 sponsoring organizations.
