Summer Food Service Program

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children 18 years old and under at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children.

Promoting summer feeding sites in your community is one of the most important things you can do to ensure no child goes hungry this summer. The more parents, children, and teenagers know about where sites are located, the more children will come to eat.

Currently in Dutchess County sites are located in the City of Beacon, Village of Wappingers Falls, City of Poughkeepsie, Amenia, Millerton and Wassiac. These locations are coordinated by various agencies and volunteers.
