Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
What is it?
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides nutritious meals to children age 18 or younger during the summer months. The SFSP provides financial reimbursement to any sponsor for up to two meals a day that meet specific meal pattern and nutritional guidelines. The SFSP is federally-funded through the USDA, but administered in Wisconsin through the Department of Public Instruction.
Why is it important?
In a city where 1 in 4 children go to bed hungry, summer hunger is a harsh reality. During the school year, many children rely on school meals for their main source of nourishment. But many kids don’t have access to nutritious meals during the summertime. It is critical that communities come together to fill the summer nutrition gap.
