Summer Food Service Program

About The Summer Food Service Program

When school is out many Arizona kids who rely on school breakfasts and lunches don’t get the meals they need.  The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally funded child nutrition program established to ensure that low-income children have an opportunity to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack) that meet federal nutrition guidelines are provided to all children at approved SFSP sites.

During Summer 2016, almost 3.5 million meals were served at SFSP sites throughout Arizona. If you are interested in becoming a Summer Site or Sponsor please contact our Child/Youth Outreach managers Monique or Chris. While SFSP sites are oftentimes schools, sites can also be at non-profits, faith-based facilities or local government agencies.
