Becoming a Summer Food Service Sponsor

Did you know that the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is one of the most needed but underutilized Federal nutrition assistance programs? Historically, summer meals served through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the National School Lunch (NSLP) Program reach only about 16 percent of the 21 million children receiving free or reduced-price lunches during the school year. There are many hungry children that we still need to reach! Please review the information below to become a Summer Food Service Program sponsor.
