It’s that time of year.
School is out for summer break.
That means some youth may go the entire summer without a daily nutritious meal usually provided by school for free at a discounted price.
To ensure that local children have access to at least one healthy meal each day, the Social Development Commission is sponsoring the Summer Food Service Program.
Free meals are available to children 18 years of age and under. Free meals are also
provided to anyone over 18 if:
- A state or local public educational agency determines an individual has mental or physical disabilities and…
- The individual participates in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year and where they may also receive free meals.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.
Please see the following list of Summer Food Service Sites.
Listed below are the USDA Income Eligibility Guidelines in effect from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.
