Edgecombe County Summer Feeding Press Release

  Filed under: Uncategorized

  Edgecombe County Public Schools is working to make sure that no children in Edgecombe County go hungry when school is closed this summer. Over 5500 children a day in Edgecombe County receive free meals during the school year, but many of these children do not get enough to eat when school is out.  The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that low-income children continue to grow and learn during the summer.

The Summer Food Service Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is the largest federal resource available for local programs that combine meal time with recreational and educational activities.

 

Edgecombe County Public Schools’ board of education and superintendent recognizes the need for the Summer Feeding Program in Edgecombe County.  “Many of our children, who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year, do not have access to these meals during the summer, and that’s where we come in. We provide nutritious meals and activities to keep kids nourished and engaged

The Summer Food Service Program for Children is a federally funded program operated nationally by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by a State Agency.

Eligible sponsors such as non-profit organizations, schools and local governments serve nutritious meals and snacks free to low-income children during the summer months. Summer programs are located at approved sites that are either in low-income areas or serve a group of children, most of whom are low-income.
