Summer Food Service Program
What is the Summer Food Service Program?
The Summer Food Service Program is a summer meal program for school age children administered by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). June through August is a challenging time of year when students have limited or no access to the school lunch program. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank delivers daily hot or cold meals nutritious meals to partner sites that serve the meal to children when school is not in session. Many of the children that participate in SFSP are the same children who rely on the school lunches.
Why we need to recruit more Summer Feeding sites
SFSP was created to feed children, which qualify for free/reduced school lunches, through the summer months when schools are closed.
