The SFSP is administered in Tennessee by the Department of Human Services under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Meals will be provided to all children without charge. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.
During the summer months, when school is closed, some children suffer the pangs of hunger. TNKids attempts to alleviate the hunger by offering free meals to children ages 18 and under. The meals are handed out at many locations throughout the county. A schedule will be posted on this website and on Facebook next spring. If you have a site when children gather (church, community center, VBS, etc...) and would like more information about being approved, call the TNKids office at (615)973-7050.
