Summer Food Service Program
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a USDA-reimbursed nutrition program that is sponsored by organizations and food banks throughout the nation and provides food-insecure children with free, nutritious meals during the summer months when school is not in session.
The Vermont Foodbank launched its SFSP in 2009 and provides wholesome breakfasts and lunches to children in low-income communities five days per week during the summer. The Vermont Foodbank secures funding to the sites can provide educational and recreational activities in a safe, fun and welcoming environment.
During the summer of 2013, the Vermont Foodbank will sponsor two sites (covering 5 schools):
- Canaan School
- North Country Supervisory Union Schools
- Including students from Brighton, Charleston, Morgan and Holland
Each site will provide breakfast and lunch for a total of 2,500 meals.
This program is made possible through the generous support of The Oakland Foundation. Your contributions also make this program possible. Please consider giving to the Vermont Foodbank today.
