Summer Food Service Programs
Feeding San Diego is a sponsor for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), providing free lunches and snacks to children and teens, Monday through Friday, June through August. Additionally, we are one of the few nonprofit SFSP sponsors in San Diego County that offers programmatic and financial support to meal service sites. The program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the California Department of Education (CDE).
Summer Fun Café BBQs
Feeding San Diego works in partnership with San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) to offer food and resources to children and families at family-friendly outdoor events throughout the summer at Summer Fun Cafe BBQs.
Our wide array of community partners, including faith communities, social service agencies, veterans organizations, and other charities join in closing the summer meal gap by offering Summer Food Service sites for lunch and dinner, increasing their distributions, and conducting skills and health-related classes.
