Who pays for it?
The Summer Meals Program is a federally funded child nutrition program that feeds children nutritious meals during the summertime when school is out and children don't have access to school meals. It was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations. Funding for the Summer Meals Program is provided with federal dollars and is sufficient to meet expenses related to sponsorship of the program.
What is the purpose of the program?
Clearly, the nutritional needs of large numbers of children who depend on school lunch meals during the school year are not being met in the summer. Good nutrition is essential for learning, growth and good health.This institution is an equal opportunity provider
