The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is looking for sponsors to help provide meals to Kansas children over the summer.
A program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), SFSP provides reimbursement to schools, public agencies and private nonprofit organizations for food services.
Meals can be served free to children in areas with school or census eligibility based on free and reduced-price meal eligibility. Free meals enhance summer education and/or recreation programs. If your community already has a sponsor, find out how you or your organization can assist by providing additional sites, volunteers or activities.
SFSP sponsors receive reimbursements for documenting and serving healthy meals to children between the ages of 1 and 18 years of age at approved sites in needy areas.
Organizations interested in serving nutritious meals to children through a summer program can call Jill Ladd, assistant director of Child Nutrition and Wellness for KSDE, at (785) 296-2276. For more information, click here.
