Summer Food Service Program

Serving free lunches during the summer months to students and their families via area camps, libraries, and more.

 

About

Every day, many of our neighbors are struggling to put food on the table. This problem is made worse in the summer months, when kids don’t have access to free & reduced lunches. The federal Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) helps to alleviate some of this strain, as well as provide a safe place for kids to be kids!

MCHPP provides food and site coordination for a variety of SFSP sites in the Mid Coast Maine area.

The Summer Food Service Program is a national program that provides free meals to children during the summer months. It is sponsored locally by Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program, in partnership with the Maine Department of Education. In the Summer of 2018, 123 Sponsors provided 727,238 meals and snacks throughout Maine at 450 sites!

In summer of 2020 MCHPP operated over 8 sites in our service area, both open and enrolled. An open site is one that anyone, aged 0-18, may visit to receive a free meal – no questions asked. An enrolled site operates at locations such as summer camps, in which qualifying enrolled kids may receive free meals at camp through SFSP.
