The New York State Education Department is accepting applications to host sites of the 2019 Summer Food Service Program, which serves low-income children, 18 and younger, to continue providing them nutritious meals when schools are not in session.
Approximately 400,000 free meals are served everyday to New York State children through the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program, which will operate this summer from June 17 through September 2, 2019.
Eligible sites include schools, government agencies, nonprofit Groups, faith-based organizations, Indian tribal territories, migrant programs and camps.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service administers the Summer Food Service Program at the national level and the New York State Education Department (SED) administers it at the State level.
