Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
Youth age 18 and under will enjoy free meals again this summer through the Summer Food Service Program coordinated by Southern New Hampshire Services.
Sites located in five cities or towns in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties will provide free meals to local youth. All meals are prepared following USDA guidelines.
Breakfast, lunch and/or supper meals are available at the designated locations.
Any child under age 18 may come to eat. There is no registration and identification is not required.
The meals are provided at no charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. Meals must be consumed on site.
Southern New Hampshire Services has been sponsoring the Summer Food Services Program for 14 years. SFSP helps to ensure that at-risk youth eat at least one nutritious meal each day when school lunch programs close for the summer. The program is vital to supporting mental and physical development so that children do not lose ground while out of school.
SFSP also employs local college age youth – many whom were SFSP participants in the past. The work experience teaches them valuable transferable employment skills and provides them with the opportunity to give back and stay connected to their community.

Food That’s In, When School Is Out!
Welcome to summer, come join in the fun!
We have free meals to eat in the sun
Everyone is welcome whose 18 and under,
We serve everyday (except when there’s thunder)
We only have a few rules to mind
So listen up closely, they’re easy you’ll find
Please eat with us, don’t take it and run
We came here to sit down with you and have fun
Please throw out your trash, in the bags that we brought
We’ll clean up the earth just like we’ve been taught
Only one meal per person, each time we come by
To make sure all who want one can sit down and try
So just when you thought that your year was a bummer
SFSP is here with free meals all summer
