About the Program
Thousands of Oregon children depend on free or reduced priced meals during the school year. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides funds for organizations to serve meals to children during the summer when school is not in session. Funding is provided by the USDA. Meal sites are hosted at a variety of locations, including parks, schools and churches.
Support Summer Programs: Donate, volunteer or spread the word. Here's how.
What We Do
Outreach and Program Assistance
Through our summer meal outreach, we work with the Oregon Department of Education and other partners to identify communities that lack summer food programs, help get programs up and running, and increase awareness of meal sites among the public. We document and share best practices through publications like our Summer Food Guide, a comprehensive resource for operators of summer food programs, our annual Child Hunger Prevention Conference and state and local summer meal workgroups. We also provide small grants to help expand access to programs.
We identify opportunities for Summer Food Service Program improvement through our work with providers here in Oregon, and monitoring efforts of other states. We advocate for these improvements through state and federal policy change, like Federal Child Nutrition Reauthorization.
