Summer Food Service Program

How does the Summer Food Service Program Work?

The Summer Food Service Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Services. The Colorado Department of Education's Office of School Nutrition approves sponsor applications, conducts training, monitors program operations, and processes program payments.

Who can Participate?

All children 18 years of age and under who go to an approved site may receive free meals.  A person 19 years of age and over who has a mental or physical disability (as determined by a State or local educational agency) and participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program may also receive free meals.
