Summer Food Service Program

Children need good nutrition all year long. When school is out during the summer months, many children no longer have access to even one nutritious meal each day. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) helps to fill the gap. To find a site, call 1-866-3-Hungry or 1-877-8-Hambre or visit the www.whyhunger.org/findfood
