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 served at feeding sites, and must be consumed on-site. They cannot be carried home. The feeding sites must be located in the zone of a school where at least 50% of the children receive free or reduced price lunch. In Robertson County for 20185, we can operate in the every area of the county except the White House Heritage cluster. If you have a site in an eligible areas and would like more information about being approved, call the TNKids office at (615)973-4323.
