Summer Food Service Program FAQs

Questions Answers
What is the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)? Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school. Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. SFSP provides an opportunity to continue a child's physical and social development while providing nutritious meals during long vacation periods from school. It helps children return to school ready to learn.

All children 18 and younger may receive free meals through SFSP, regardless of income. Meals are also available to persons with disabilities, over age 18, who participate in school programs for people who are mentally or physically disabled.
How long as the SFSP been in existence? SFSP was first created as part of a larger pilot program in 1968. It became a separate program in 1975. More than 2.28 million children participated at almost 39,000 sites in the summer of 2012.

The Pocatello/Chubbuck School District has operated a successful Summer Food Service Program for 20 years, since 2001.​
