With summer in full swing, children and teens that relied on school meals for their nourishment and nutrition can be left without. This is where the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program (“SFSP”), commonly referred to as the Summer Meals Program, steps in.  The program provides healthy free breakfast and lunch meals, as well as snacks, to kids 18 years of age and younger.

Join #FoodFri on Friday, July 8, 2016, 1pm Eastern, to chat with @MomsRising and our expert co-host, @USDANutrition, to discuss summer meals for kids and teens.
