The Seamless Summer Food Service Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is the largest federal resource available for local programs that combine mealtime with recreational and educational activities during the summer months.
Summer meal programs are located at approved sites that are either in low-income areas or serve a group of children, most of whom are low-income. Hosts of the summer program for this year include faith based organizations, non-profit organizations, schools and local government agencies.
All children 18 years of age and younger welcomed
