Program looking for sponsors

ATLANTA — The Summer Food Service Program is looking for eligible sponsors to serve nutritious meals to children throughout Georgia this summer.

The SFSP, administered by Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning, is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The SFSP provides free meals to eligible children in low-income areas during the summer months when students are out of school, where they would normally receive breakfast and/or lunch.

The following entities can qualify as sponsors: public or private nonprofit schools; universities, colleges or camps; units of local government; private nonprofit organizations, including faith-based organizations considered tax exempt by the IRS.

Sponsors can operate the program and feed children at sites such as schools, churches, recreation centers, community and migrant centers, and other local community areas where children congregate and play. Sponsors are reimbursed according to federal guidelines. They can prepare and serve meals themselves or contract with a food vendor to prepare meals.

Sponsors receive training regarding the application process, setting up and operating a successful program, and nutrition education. They also receive technical assistance during the time the program is operating.

For more information on becoming an SFSP sponsor, call Summer Food Service Program team at Bright from the Start at 404-656-5957 or e-mail SFSP@decal.ga.gov.
