The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federal nutrition program from the USDA for school-age children administered by the Ohio Department of Education.
June through August is a challenging time of year when students have limited or no access to the school breakfast and lunch programs.
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank delivers daily nutritious breakfasts and lunches to partner sites that serve the meals to children when school is not in session. SFSP sites include schools, camps, parks, playgrounds, community centers, churches, and other public sites where children gather in the summer. Many of the children that participate in SFSP are the same children who rely on the school breakfast and lunch programs during the school year.
