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).

Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.) should contact the agency (state or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
