    SFSP 2023 High Heat Waiver Request

    The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a USDA, federally-funded program administered by States that operates during the summer months when school is not in session.  The SFSP was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.  Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children, 18 years old and under, at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children.

    In Delaware, during the summer of 2019, over 802,559 meals (breakfast, lunch, snack, and supper) were served at over 378 statewide locations.  In Summer 2020, while utilizing waivers offered by USDA, Delaware SFSP Sponsors served over 3 million meals!  Our goal is to ensure that children who normally receive free or reduced priced lunch during the school year can gain access to nutritious meals during the during summer months.
