Summer Food Service Program
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a supplemental meal program sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and managed by Community Food and Nutrition Assistance (CFNA) program within the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). The program provides funding that allows community groups to serve meals at various feeding sites throughout the summer months when school is not in session, to children who otherwise may go hungry or lack adequate nutrition. Food safety and sanitation inspections are conducted by Local Public Health Agency (LPHA) staff of food preparation sites and meal service locations. Many of these sites are located at schools, churches, parks, and children’s camps.
