Summer Food Service Program

Florida's Summer Break SpotLearning doesn’t end when school lets out; neither does the need for good nutrition!

Through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), free, nutritious meals like breakfast, lunch and snack are available for kids 18 and under all summer long!

Last fiscal year, Second Harvest Food Bank sponsored 30 sites in four counties. 90,329 meals were served during 56 operational days. With support from generous funders, we were also able to provide almost 7,000 take home, shelf-stable food packs for the weekends.

Since the program commenced in 2008, Second Harvest has provided more than 394,730 summer meals.

Two nutritionally balanced meals will be provided daily (Monday- Friday) to all children regardless of race, color, sex, disability, age, or national origin, during summer vacation when school cafeterias are not accessible.

The Summer Food Service Program for Children is a federally-funded program operated nationally by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, Food Nutrition & Wellness Division.

This program is designed to provide meals when school is not in session and is implemented in communities where at least 50% of the residents are living below the poverty line.
