The federal Summer Food initiatively began as a supplemental program for the Federal Free Lunch Program which assists low income children with breakfast and lunch during the school year.
What is the Summer Food Service Program?  Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children 18 years old and younger in low-income areas to get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school. 
Why is SFSP important to our community? Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. SFSP provides an opportunity to continue a child's physical and social development while providing nutritious meals during long vacation periods from school. It helps children return to school ready to learn.
Grace Center Church, sees the great need for this program in our community. With your help and participation we can help the families and feed the children.
