Summer Meal Programs

When school is not in session, Summer Meal Programs can help fill the nutrition gap children may face without access to school meals. Summer Meal Programs include the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). Children and teens between the ages of 1 and 18 are eligible to receive meals at no charge under both of these programs. This page contains information that applies to both the SFSP and the SSO. For program-specific information, please click on the appropriate program button to visit its program page.
