Summer Feeding-Hunger Never Takes a Vacation! - 03-01-2014

Summer Feeding for Children in 2014

SFSP (Summer Feeding Service Program)


1 in 5 children in Northwest Louisiana are food insecure. Most of these children rely on the breakfast and lunch served each day at their school.  How are they going to eat this summer?  Hunger never takes a vacation!   The Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana is preparing for the summer now.

  

Does your non-profit organization offer an established summer program for children?

 

If your organization doesn’t have the capacity to cook meals, and you are willing to undergo training and maintain records for the SFSP Program, you may be eligible to receive free shelf-stable meals for your existing children’s summer program.
