Eat Right, Find a Site!

July 16, 2012

When school is out, low-income children lose their access to regular daily school lunches and breakfasts. These meals typically provide at least one-third and one-fourth, respectively, of the nutrients that a child needs during the school year. Because families cannot meet this need, food banks report increases in requests for emergency food during the summer. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) fills this vacuum. It provides nutritious meals and snacks to children during this time. Meals are provided to the children free of charge.

You can find a SFSP site in your area by visiting our Summer Food webpage. For sites that are statewide, please try the interactive map by visiting the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Square Meals website to view sites all over Texas. Check the map regularly as site information is updated daily.

Help kids access the nutrition they need during the summer! For questions, please call 211 or 210-431-8326.
