> Maryland Summer Food Service
Nearly a quarter of a million low-income children in Maryland depend on School Meals for the good nutrition they need to learn and grow. For these children, the start of summer vacation brings an end to free or reduced-price school breakfast and lunch. Fortunately, there is a program that can help provide nutritious meals to low-income children during the months when school is closed. It's called the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).
