Summer Feeding Program

Healthy Summer Meals For Kids

The lazy days of summer are finally here! For many of us, summer is a wonderful blend of pool parties, barbecues and enjoying all the beauty the Treasure Coast has to offer. For many families, instead of summer being a time for fun and relaxation, it’s a stressful time as they struggle to provide food for their children.

Many working families struggle in the summer due to the seasonal nature of employment opportunities on the Treasure Coast. Thousands of children rely on free or reduced meals provided at school during the school year. For some, it’s the only meal they receive each day. Thanks to the generous support of our community and friends like you, Treasure Coast Food Bank is able to offer the Summer Meals Program to children and provide them with free healthy meals throughout the summer.

Thank you for making our work possible!

Treasure Coast Food Bank’s dedicated team prepares nutritious summer meals Monday – Friday for children to enjoy during the week.

What is the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)?

  •  WHAT?  Free food and fun all summer long
  •  WHO?  Kids and teens 18 and under
  •  WHERE?  At a TCFB location near you!

Is there a cost?

  • There is no cost for meals. USDA requires that meals be served at no charge to the children. However, the site may have a fee set for the activity program that they provide

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. It provides nutritious and free meals to children 18 and younger during the summer months.
