Locations and hours for Social Development Commission’s (SDC) Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) have been announced for the summer. The program provides free meals to children age 18 and under during the summer.
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Earl Guyton, SDC food service manager.
The free meal program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Milwaukee Public Schools and the Hunger Task Force, and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee will serve meals at three locations, and also is a sponsor.
A total of 28 sites will provide lunch, with some also serving breakfast or a late afternoon meal from June to August. Program start and end dates, meal times and days differ depending on location. The sites are located in areas of the city that have concentrated levels of poverty and therefore the most need, Guyton said.
People over the age of 18 who are mentally or physically disabled and participate in public or private school programs during the regular school year may also receive free meals.
