Summer Food Service

As the end of the school year approaches, many teachers and students are filled with anticipation of the long, care free summer days to come.

Summer Calendar

No more early mornings. No more classes. No more homework. No more test. However, for many students, the end of summer also signals the end to guaranteed meals on a regular basis. When school is out for summer vacation, millions of children across the nation lose access to the free and reduced-price meals they receive during the school year.

Food that’s in, when school is out

The Summer Food Service Program, facilitated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), aims to fill that gap, providing children with free, healthy meals during the summer months when school is not in session and when many children often face missing meals and lack of proper nutrition. Last year, more than 21 million children received free and reduced-price meals during the school year, but only 2.3 million participated in the Summer Food Service Program. In Michigan alone, over 421,000 children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs (NSLP and NSBP).

During the summer, the Food Bank partners with more than 60 feeding sites throughout Genesee, Saginaw, Bay and Alcona counties to help keep young people nourished and healthy. As a sponsor of the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), the Food Bank is able to distribute nearly 80,000 meals through daily deliveries to each location during the summer. Breakfast and lunch are provided daily by the Food Bank, as well as kid friendly treats.

We don’t stop there—the Food Bank also strives to provide healthy snacks in our “Summer Take-Home Nutrition” bags. They are offered to every site and are for children to take tome and enjoy over the weekend. The bags contain precut veggies, fresh fruit, granola bars, milk and 100% juice. Since its inception in 2011, the Food Bank has distributed over 70,000 nutrition bags.

The Food Bank is currently recruiting sites to serve meals this summer.

Sites can be churches, organizations, or schools, and must be located within a mile of any public school where more than 50 percent of the students receive free or reduced lunches. The sites must also serve no less than 30 children per day for at least three days a week for four or more weeks. The 2014 program runs from June 16th until August 22rd.

For more information regarding the Summer Food Service Program or to discuss becoming a site, please contact Chevon Wilborn at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan by phone: 810-396-0224 or email cwilborn@feedingamerica.org

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Your gift will aid in the efforts to relieve childhood hunger. Your donations in support of the program is the single best way to help the cause. You can also get involved with your local community schools and help bring the program to your local district. You may volunteer your services to help stuff backpacks during the school day.
