Summer Food Service Program Announcement

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

SYRACUSE, NY – Food Bank of Central New York announces its participation in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Meals will be provided to all children 18 years and younger without charge. This year marks the 12th year that the Food Bank has provided nutritious meals to children during the summer months when access to breakfast and lunch is not as easy as it is during the school year. Last summer, the Food Bank distributed more than 25,000 meals to children in Onondaga and Cayuga Counties. This summer, we are expanding into Lewis County, where we will provide an average of 300 meals per day to children in those communities.
