[ARCHIVED] Free Summer Lunch Program

Summer Food Program

Children need healthy food all year long. During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. When school lets out many of these children are at risk of hunger. 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 and make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The SFSP is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children get the nutritious meals they need.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally-funded, state-administered program. The SFSP reimburses providers who serve healthy meals to children and teens in low-income areas at no charge primarily during the summer months when school is not in session.

Sites are places in the community where children receive meals in a safe and supervised environment. Sites may be located in a variety of settings, including schools, parks, community centers, churches, and migrant centers. Sites work directly with sponsors.

Washington County location site includes Hudson Falls Primary School, whom will be serving breakfast 7:45 – 8:30 and lunch is 11:30 – 12:15. Please visit Hudson Falls Central School Website for more information and menu options. Other locations include East Field Playground which offers lunch 7/1-8/14, and Ticonderoga Elementary School that provides breakfast and lunch 7/6-8/13. To find additional meal sites please call 1-800-522-5006. Information will be updated regularly.
