Summer Food Service Programs for Children
Do you or someone you know have concerns about how your kids will stay well fed throughout the summer months? One in every six households with children in Washtenaw county face varying levels of food insecurity, a concern that only worsens when school is let out. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs.
Food Gatherers will be sponsoring the 2014 SFSP's in Washtenaw county by providing free meals to children under 18, or persons up to age 26 that are enrolled in an educational program for the mentally or physically disabled. You can find the site listings here; please note that some sites do have participation requirements. If you have any questions, contact Food Gatherers at (734) 761-2796.
