City of Atlanta’s Summer Food Program
The City of Atlanta is preparing for the 2015 Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) in partnership with Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning continuing Mayor Reed’s initiative to provide healthy, nutritious meals for children in our communities during the summer months. The 2015 program will operate in the months of June and July.
Communities wishing to participate in the SFSP must be non-profit 501©3 organizations, houses of worship, government entities, colleges/universities, school systems, or National Youth Sports Programs (NYSP). The children who receive meals must be age 18 and under. However, a person 19 years of age and over who has a mental or physical disability and who participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program is also eligible to receive meals. Organizations must serve these meals in a supervised setting to children in low-income areas or specific groups of low-income children.
If organizations or congregations are interested in partnering, please contact the Mayor’s Office of Human Services at 404-546-3069. The deadline for submission is Friday, February 27, 2015.
