APPLICATION DEADLINE IS APRIL 30, 2014
Sponsors must be organizations that are fully capable of managing a food service program. To be a sponsor, you must follow regulations and be responsible, financially and administratively, for running your program. Eligible organizations include:
A sponsor may provide its own meals, purchase meals through an agreement with an area school, or contract for meals with a food vendor.
The SFSP reaches only a fraction of the children in need. The primary reason for the limited access to the program is that there are not enough feeding sites. Your community building or place of faith could become a feeding site. Sites are the physical locations where food is served. Each site location must work with a SFSP sponsor that is financially and administratively responsible for the meal service at the site. You can also help by coordinating site participation with other youth activity programs in your area. There are three common types of sites: open, camps (residential and nonresidential), and closed enrolled sites.
