Federal nutrition programs provide children from low-income families free, nutritious meals to help them learn, play and grow in the summer when they are out of school. There are three child nutrition summer feeding offerings: Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), the Seamless Summer Option, and schools that operate year-round can continue to provide meals through the National School Lunch Program/School Breakfast Program (NSLP/SBP).
The summer meals programs are an important link in maintaining the health and well-being of Minnesota’s food insecure children. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor academic performance once school begins.
