Sponsors needed for food service program Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Children who aren't hungry learn better, act better, and feel better. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) helps children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow during summer months when they are out of school. SFPS is administered at the federal level by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
State education agencies administer SFSP in most states. Other state agencies may also be assigned to run the program. More sponsors are needed at the local level in order to feed more hungry children during the summer months.
