Summer Food Service

What is the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)?

The Summer Food Service Program was created to ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast.  This program helps children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.

Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like West Des Moines Community Schools to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer.
