Summer Food Service Program to provide healthy meals and snacks to children

Families can find sites by texting “FoodIL” to 877-877

SPRINGFIELD – The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will provide healthy meals and snacks this summer to children and teens age 18 and younger. The SFSP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Illinois State Board of Education in partnership with local organizations across the state. 

Hunger touches every community in Illinois. The need is great for this critical program. Only 11 of every 100 children who receive a meal at school during the school year in Illinois receive an SFSP meal in the summer, according to the Food Research & Action Center’s 2017 Summer Nutrition Status Report.

“Children need healthy food during the summer as much as they need it during the school year,” said State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D. “The Summer Food Service Program brings critical resources to communities across the state and helps all our children stay ready to learn. ISBE is proud to administer the Summer Food Service Program.”

Illinois sponsored more than 1,900 SFSP sites last summer throughout the state. Families can find their nearest summer meals site by calling (800) 359-2163, texting “FoodIL" to 877-877, or visiting http://summerfeedingillinois.org/.
