Summer Food Service Program

Summer Food Service Program
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that at-risk children and teens have access to healthy meals and snacks during the summer months when school is not in session. During the school year, 22 million children receive free or reduced lunches – and this program was designed to fill the gap during the summer months for these children. Sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Summer Food Service Program provides breakfast, lunches and snacks in safe, supervised areas such as parks, pools and recreation centers for any child 18 years of age or younger that comes to the location. Southern New Hampshire Services has been a doorway to this program in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties for 16 years, with sites in Manchester, Nashua and the Seacoast.

Program Spotlight: Seniors Farmers Market
Summer weather is always good for a positive attitude boost, but fresh fruit and veggies? They go hand in hand! SNHS has been providing access to NH grown bundles of fruits and vegetables throughout the summer season. In fact, more than 1,240 seniors with low incomes were able to enjoy the tastes of summer last season. Thank you to all of the farmers who make maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet a possibility for our clients!

“Mrs. L looks forward to her summer appointment to receive her commodity food boxes because that’s when she receives her Farmers Market program bundle. Her favorite items she has received are corn on the cob, tomatoes, and peaches. Mrs. L said she is very thankful for the program because it is expensive to try to get farm fresh produce on a fixed income.
