Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food
Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition
they need to learn, play and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school.
The Summer Food Service Program for children and teens is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA),
through the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and is administered locally by the Baltimore Housing
Office of Community Services. An extension of the National School Lunch Program, which is designed to guarantee
eligible children free and nutritious breakfasts and lunches during the school year, the Summer Food Service Program
was created to guarantee these same youngsters at least one nutritionally sound meal a day during their summer vacations.
Baltimore Housing encourages your participation in the program to assist us in providing this valuable service
to the children and teens of Baltimore City. Any non-profit organization, church, day camp, community group, or city agency may qualify
to become a SFSP site.
