Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley is proud to announce its continued sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program. Meals for this program will be served at the Boys & Girls Club of Appleton (160 S. Badger Ave.) and Boys & Girls Club of Menasha (600 Racine St.).
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
