(For sponsors that are not camps and that establish program eligibility by geographic area)

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, the Boys & Girls

Clubs of Greater Milwaukee announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and

available to children 18 years of age and under. Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or

local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or

private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.

Breakfast, lunch and/or afternoon snacks will be provided to Boys & Girls Club members Monday through Friday
