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?
Summer is the peak time for childhood hunger. Hunger Task Force organizes a nationally recognized summer meals program in Milwaukee that provides up to three meals a day to
children age 18 and younger.
Who is eligible?
All children under age 18 are eligible for summer meals. Summer meals are provided at a variety of supervised sites in the community, at locations like schools, parks and community
centers throughout Milwaukee.

The “Milwaukee Model”
Summer is the peak time for childhood hunger. Hunger Task Force administers the federal Summer Meals program in Milwaukee in such a large and inclusive way that it’s been dubbed the “Milwaukee Model.”
Communities throughout Wisconsin are improving access to summer meals by replicating the Hunger Task Force’s “Milwaukee Model,” which brings key partners together to collaborate and organize local summer meal programs. Last year, Wisconsin served nearly 3 million meals from June to August, and more than 875,000 of those were served in Milwaukee.
