|Today marks the 2nd annual National Summer Food Service Program Kick Off Week (June 11-15)! During the school year, more than 21 million children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. But when school is out, many low-income kids relying on these school meals, go hungry. To close that gap, USDA’s Summer Food Service Program(SFSP) helps children get the nutritious meals they need during the summer months so they’re ready to learn when they return to school in the fall.This week, we’ll be sharing SFSP information through Twitter (@USDANutrition), blogs (http://blogs.usda.gov/), and a variety of National Summer Food Service Program kick-off events throughout the country.
Help us raise awareness of this program and connect children and families to summer meal sites in their community! Here are some ways you can help!

Our nation’s children are relying on all of us to do our part so no child goes hungry this summer. Thank you for your work and continued support
