USDA Summer Food Programs -Columbia

 In Columbia - Childcare, Columbia - Food and Shelter


  • The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was designed to provide free meals to children during the summer months.
  • When schools let out for the summer, many children are at risk of hunger and malnutrition. The lack of nutrition during the summer months can result in poor performance once the school year begins and makes children more prone to illnesses and other health issues.
  • SFSP is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need.
  • All children under the age of 18 are eligible to receive a free meal.
