Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)

4J participates in the Summer Food Service Program by serving free meals to children during the summer. There is no income requirement or registration, and any child under age 18 may participate; adults are welcome to eat for $4.00.

During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. What happens when school lets out? Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. Hunger also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The Summer Food Service Program is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need. (www.ode.state.or.us).
