Summer Food Service Program

  NUMBERED MEMOS | CONTACT

Summer Food Service Program is administered at the Federal level by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). In South Dakota the Department of Education administers the program for local sponsors throughout the state.

The Summer Food Service Program provides meals to children in low-income areas when school is not in session. Throughout South Dakota, sponsors such as schools, private non-profit organization, and government entities participate in providing meals during school vacations.

To participate in the program, a sponsor must first determine if it serves a low-income area. The sponsor may have an area with 50 percent of the area’s population qualified for free or reduced priced meals, which allows all children under the age of 18 eligible for free meals. If a select group of low-income children participate in a program that is not in a low-income area, each child will qualify and if over 50 percent of those in the program qualify for free or reduced priced meals each month, all the children 18 years of age in attendance at the site may receive free meals. Camps are an exception; both residential and non-residential camps must collect and maintain income eligibility forms. Camps are reimbursed only for those enrolled children who meet the free and/or reduced price eligibility standards.
