Summer Food Program Volunteering The summer Food Service Program (SFSP or the “summer meals program”) was created to connect children from low-income families to the crucial nutrition they need during the summer. The program was created more than 40 years ago to help children from low-income families get the healthy food they need during the summer months, when school is out. Local organizations like schools, recreation centers, YMCA, Boys & Girls clubs & Libraries run summer sites to feed and sometimes even offer enrichment opportunities for these children in high need areas.

If you are interested in volunteering for future programs please contact Robert Dowdell at 330-375-2832.
