Summer Food Service Program

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a program of the USDA that was instituted to ensure that children residing in households with lower incomes continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

During the summer months, Good Shepherd Food Bank and many other organizations step in with programming to fill the summer meal gap that children face.

Summer 2017 SFSP sponsors provided 754,063 meals to Maine children!
