About The Summer Food Service Program…

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 micoast 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. There were more than 100 sites throughout the state in the summer of 2015.

In summer of 2015 we operated 11 sites in our service area that were either open or enrolled. An open site is one that anyone, aged 2-18, may visit to receive a free meal – no questions asked. An enrolled site means that those who have registered for a summer camp at one of these locations and are also eligible to receive free or reduced lunch during the school year may receive a free meal. The 2016 site locations are listed below. If you have any questions you can contact our Summer Food Service Program Coordinator, Savannah MacLean, at [email protected] or 207-725-2716 x312.
