Summer Food Service Program

What is the Summer Food Service Program?

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children could continue to receive nutritious meals during summer vacation, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. Robbinsdale Area Schools is a local sponsor of the USDA Summer Food Service Program, which provides nutritious meals in Robbinsdale schools.

Why is the SFSP program important to your community?

Children who do not eat school lunch or breakfasts are more likely to be sick, absent, or tardy, as well as display disruptive and inattentive behavior in class. Good nutrition is essential for learning, and the SFSP provides an opportunity to continue the physical and social development of children in your community by providing nutritious meals while on summer vacation. With SFSP, children will play and grow throughout the summer, then return to school ready to learn.

What does it cost to be on the program?

Absolutely nothing! Meals served through the Summer Food Service Programs are FREE to ALL children ages 1-18 enrolled in summer classes and activities.
