The Niagara County Youth Bureau will return as a sponsor for the 2023 Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). This program ensures that children who are economically disadvantaged continue to receive nutritious meals during summer vacation. Meals are comparable to the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs (NSBP and NSLP, respectively) throughout the school year.
The Summer Food Service Program is a federally funded program (funded by USDA and administered by the New York State Education Department [NYSED]) that provides free meals to all children at approved SFSP sites. Meals (including breakfast and/or lunch) are provided to children ages 18 and under.
Applications are now being accepted from prospective Summer Food Service Program sites. Approved sites will receive meals during the program, which plans to run from June 26 to Aug. 25. Site requests are individualized, including meals needed and program dates.
