Baltimore Housing encourages your participation in the program to assist us in providing this valuable service to the children and teens of Baltimore City. Any non-profit organization, church, day camp, community group, or city agency may qualify to become a SFSP site. The Summer Food Service Program for children and teens is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), through the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and is administered locally by the Baltimore Housing Office of Community Services. As an extension of the National School Lunch Program, which is designed to guarantee eligible children free and nutritious breakfasts and lunches during the school year, the Summer Food Service Program was created to guarantee these same youngsters at least one nutritionally sound meal a day during their summer vacations.
Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious breakfast and lunch to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months while they are out of school.
The tentative program dates are Monday through Friday, June 19 until September 1, 2017. These dates are subject to change, reflecting Baltimore City Schools’ calendar adjustments.
