MDE announces Summer Food Program sponsors and sites

The Department of Education announces that a Summer Food Service Program for children will be operated by the following sponsors at the sites listed.  These organizations may be contacted to find out the starting and ending times of meal service at each site.  This program is administered by the Office of Child Nutrition through the Office of Healthy Schools.

The Summer Food Service Program is designed to ensure that children who had the opportunity to receive a nutritious meal at school during the regular school year are able to do so during the summer months when school is not open.  Meals will be served FREE to children 18 years of age and under.

Households of children who attend a residential camp must complete a meal application.  To be eligible to receive free meals at a residential camp, children must meet the income guidelines for reduced price meals.

Children who are part of households that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or benefits under the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) are automatically eligible to receive free meals.

For more information on the Summer Food Service Program, contact the sponsoring agency in your county.
