Summer Food Service Program-SFSP

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a national program of the USDA that provides FREE meals to kids during the summer months. Local sponsors (like schools, church es and community organizations) sign up through PA Department of Education and agree to make meals for the summer. Meals are served at sites (like churches, parks, low-income housing locations, schools, YMCA’s, Boys & Girls Clubs, community centers, etc.). Sponsors receive a fixed reimbursement for every meals served to an eligible child at a site.
