Program Description

The Summer Food Service Program is a federally assisted meal program that provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need throughout the summer months when they are out of school. They receive reimbursement from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for each meal and snack served. Sponsors may also receive donated commodities from the USDA.

Program Requirements

The Montana Office of Public Instruction School Nutrition Programs approves Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) meal sites as open, enrolled, or camp sites. Open sites operate in low-income areas where at least half of the children come from families with incomes at or below 185 percent of the Federal poverty level, making them eligible for free and reduced-price school meals. Meals are served free to any child at the open site. Enrolled sites provide free meals to children enrolled in an activity program at the site where at least half of them are eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Camps may also participate in SFSP. They receive payments only for the meals served to children who are eligible for free and reduced-price meals.

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $22,459
2 $30,451
3 $38,443
4 $46,435
5 $54,427
6 $62,419
7 $70,411
8 $78,403

*For households with more than eight people, add $7,992 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.

Meals are served free to any child at open feeding sites. To find a Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) open feeding site in or around your community visit the USDA’s Summer Meal Site Finder.
