The federally-funded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will again be available to children 18 and under from low income families through several sites statewide.. .
Over one million of Georgia’s school-aged children are eligible for free or reduced lunch when school is in session. The summer food program provides free meals in low-income areas during the summer months when students are out of school and may not have access to well-balanced meals.
To locate a site where children can access nutritious, free meals, visit the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) at http://www.decal.ga.gov/Nutrition/Search.aspx. Use the search function (zip code or county) to find a list of local facilities open to the public and sponsors, addresses, maps, contact names, and phone numbers. Additionally, sites can be located by calling 1-855-550-SFSP (7377) or by texting “FOODGA” to 877-877 (standard messaging and data rates apply).
