Summer Nutrition Programs

Filed under: City |

The Summer Food Service Program contracts sponsors such as school districts, Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs, and summer camps to administer the program and provide food to feeding sites. Feeding sites serve food to children. Community partners help with outreach, volunteers, and activities.

The Seamless Summer Program option enables schools to continue to operate the National School Lunch Program during the summer months. Both programs address hunger and healthy eating to benefit the well-being of Texas’ children.
