> Wisconsin Summer Food Service
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free meals to low-income children during school vacations. More than 26 million children eat school lunch every day when school is in session, and about half of them receive their meals free or at a reduced price due to low household income. The summer program offers those children nutritious food when school is not in session. Nationally, the SFSP serve approximately 2 million children a day during the summer. In summer 2003, Wisconsin served in excess of 1 million meals at about 400 sites operated by 90 sponsoring organizations.
