Summer Food Service Program Information

Food that’s in when school is out.

Ask any parent, feeding hungry kids all summer is a big job, and is especially tough on a tight budget. The Food Finders Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to meet the needs of hungry children during a time when other resources, like the National School Lunch Service, are not available. This program is open to any child under 18 years of age.

The Food Finders Summer Food Service Program began in the summer of 2010 with four sites in Tippecanoe and Benton counties. The kids enjoyed recreational activities, fun food education, arts, crafts and the time spent with the Lunch Crew.

Food Finders has been fortunate to receive grant funds from ConAgra and Feeding America yearly since 2010 which has helped to greatly expand the food bank’s efforts.

By summer’s end 2015, Food Finders had served over 22,000 meals. Most sites were organized by volunteers at area churches, libraries, apartment communities, and schools. In addition to lunches, take home items such as fresh fruits and vegetables were provided weekly. Most sites added fun recreational activities for the children.
