Summer Food Service Program

Summer Foods Program Welcome to Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) in Idaho!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) serves healthy meals and snacks to children in low-income areas in the summer.

During the school year, meals are served through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs but these programs end when school ends. Since hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation, the SFSP helps fill the hunger gap.

The program is sponsored by school districts, local government agencies, camps, or public/private non-profit organizations. Many meal sites also have games and reading activities to build healthy bodies and minds. The SFSP helps our children return to school in the fall ready to learn.

It's never too early to start thinking about summer! Planning for the program is a year-round effort and there are many ways to get involved. Contact the SDE to see how your organization can help!

Please contact Angela Kraft with SFSP questions at or (208) 332-6820.
