Welcome to Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) in Idaho!
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program (Summer Food Program) is a Federally-funded, state-administered program that relies on innovative and collaborative efforts to reach children in need. The program is sponsored locally by school districts, local government agencies, camps, or public/private non-profit organizations. Nutritious meals and snacks are provided to children in low-income areas during the summer months when school meals are not available.
During the school year, nutritious meals are served through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. These programs end when school ends, but hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation. The Summer Food Program helps fill that hunger gap. Every year the Summer Food Program serves over 1,000,000 meals to children in Idaho! In addition to nutritionally-balanced meals and snacks, many feeding sites offer activities to improve literacy, promote physical activity, and foster social engagement. As a result of Idaho’s Summer Food Program, our children return to school in the fall healthy and ready to learn.
There are many ways to get involved and Idaho needs your help to increase capacity and awareness about this valuable program!
