A program that targets children in low-income areas so they have meals during the summer when schools are out of session is seeking sponsors and meal sites. The Summer Food Service Program, a federally funded program operated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and managed locally by the Delaware Department of Education, needs sponsors and meal sites for locations throughout Delaware to increase the number of children 18 years of age or younger who receive nutritious and healthy meals during the summer months. Organizations that participate are eligible to receive reimbursements for meals served and administrative expenses.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which is managed locally by the Delaware Department of Education. Sponsors in CACFP can receive reimbursement for meals served in compliance with program regulations at qualifying child care centers, adult day care centers, emergency shelters, family day care homes and afterschool programs. Sponsors may be reimbursed for up to two meals and one snack per participant each day. Participant eligibility is tied to income eligibility guidelines that are adjusted annually by the USDA.
