Summer Food Service Program Offers Free Meals for Children and Teens

The annual Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is committed to helping families nationwide keep their children fed while school is out for the summer.  Through this program, families can locate meal sites that offer free, nutritious meals provided by organizations in their community for children and teens 18 and younger.

Use the online Summer Meals Locator to find free meal sites near you. You can also text “food” or “comida” to 877–877 (data and message rates may apply).

SFSP is a federally funded program sponsored by many organizations throughout the state, including schools, nonprofit organizations, local governments, tribes and more.  It is separate from meal programs operated by school districts during school closures.

After Friday, June 19th, Ridgefield School District will not be providing free student meals at its school sites or at satellite meal pickup locations.  Ridgefield School District has compiled a list of additional food assistance resources available over the summer.  To view, click here:  https://tinyurl.com/ycy92aak
