THE SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM BEGINS IN
MONROE COUNTY

 

Monroeville, Ala. - Many families depend on school meals to provide nourishment to their children during the school year. When school is out, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and State of Alabama Department of Education Child Nutrition Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) fills the “nutrition gap” at feeding sites operated by approved sponsors.

 

The Monroe County Board of Education is participating in the Summer Food Service Program for the fifth year. This program is open to all children 18 and under and those who are 19 years of age if they are enrolled in an accredited public school institution.  Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
