Summer Food Service Program/LOVIN’ LUNCHBOX
Good nutrition is essential for effective learning every day, all year long. Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Children who aren’t hungry learn better, act better, and feel better. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is federally funded by the USDA and is targeted at ending childhood hunger. SFSP incorporates an after school snack program during the school year and a meals program during the summer break, Lovin' Lunchbox. Together, they help ensure children get the nutrition they need throughout the day to learn, play, and grow.
How it works
Our after school snack program provides free nutritious snacks to low-income children through a variety of community locations where children already congregate—such as after school programs provided by Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, or public schools. In addition to providing snacks to children, all sites offer a safe place, where under the supervision of trustworthy staff a child can get involved in educational, recreational and social activities.
During the school year 16,000 of the children in our county participate in the Free or Reduced Priced School Meals program at school, which provides them with a meal during the day. Unfortunately, during the summer break these children no longer have access to these meals. Lovin' Lunchbox provides nutritious meals (like breakfast or lunch) and a snack to children and teenagers age 18 years and younger struggling with hunger at approved sites during the summer months when school is not in session.
- County wide program begins June 15th, 2015
- Meals are available at designated sites throughout the SLO County
- Meals are FREE to children and teens ages 18 and younger
- Food served follows or exceeds USDA nutrition guidelines
- No paperwork or applications are required. All children ages 0-18 can receive a free meal at advertised sites.
