NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee Department of Human Services is seeking sponsors for its Summer Food Service Program.

This federally funded program is intended to assure that children who rely on free and reduced price meals during the school year have access to nutritious meals during the summer.

Eligible sponsors include schools, private non-profit organizations, government entities and non-profit residential camps. Sponsors are reimbursed on a per-meal basis for meals served to eligible children and may sponsor the program at one or more sites.

Last year, a total of 91 sponsors served more than 4 million meals to children at more than 2,000 sites across Tennessee.

For more information on the Summer Food Service Program, please visit fns.usda.gov/sfsp/summer-food-service-program-sfsp.
