The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children 18 years old and under at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children.
The Summer Food Program for Children is a program operated by The Community Action Council of Portage County designed to provide nutritious lunches to low income children throughout Portage County. The agency develops lunch sites around the county and provides free lunches at designated times Monday through Friday between roughly mid-June to mid-August annually. Breakfast is provided at various sites. The agency can also work with day camps and existing summer youth programs to provide meals at their sites if needed.
The program is funded by the US Department of Agriculture through the Ohio Development of Education, Child Nutrition Services.
All lunches are provided free of charge to eligible children under the age of nineteen (19) and to mentally or physically challenged adults. There are no applications for sites that are considered "open", any child can visit the following locations:
