SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM


What is the Summer Food Service Program?

In the Food Bank of the Southern Tier's six-county service area, over 50% of children are eligible for free and reduced-priced meals at school. With the school year ending, many children in the Southern Tier who these meals will soon be without access to in-school meal service for the summer. This is where the Summer Food Service Program steps in the help fill this gap.  Any child aged 18 and under is welcome at an open meal site and can eat a free, healthy meal or snack.  There is no registration or paperwork required.  Please help us spread the word about this program.


For more information, dial 2-1-1 or visit www.211helpline.org.
