> District of Columbia Summer Food Service
The DC Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides reimbursement for free, nutritious meals and snacks served to DC children 18 and younger. These meals help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.
When school is out the meals served as a part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are not available and due to families' limited budgets, or other circumstances, children will often miss wholesome meals. The SFSP fills this gap and parents benefit from some help in stretching their food dollars and by knowing that their children are receiving healthy meals in a supportive environment.
