Meals are served at no cost to the participants or the sites. Operating a site is an easy way to help kids receive proper nutrition during the summer months.

To serve meals this summer, sites must:

  • Attend a training session at the Food Bank of Delaware

Trainings will be held:

Newark facility
TBA

Milford facility
TBA

  • Supervise activities and meal service at your site
  • Distribute meals by following SFSP guidelines
  • Keep daily records of meals served
  • Store food appropriately
  • Keep the site clean and sanitary

What sites qualify as eligible?

Meals can be provided to children in need at a central site such as a school, park, playground, community center, summer camp, library, church and more! Schools that are offering summer courses can open their meal service to the entire community by participating in the SFSP as a sponsor.

A site can be open to all children in the community if at least 50 percent of the area’s children are eligible for free o reduced-price lunch meals. The Food Bank of Delaware can assist you with determining if your site is eligible.

Most sites may claim reimbursement for up to two meals daily, usually lunch and breakfast. Residential camps and sites serving primarily migrant children may claim reimbursement for up to three meals daily.
