Summer Food Service Program
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 2015, we can only operate in the East Robertson, Jo Byrns, and Springfield clusters. This does, however, also include the Coopertown schools as they eventually feed into Springfield High. If you have a site in one of these areas and would like more information about being approved, call the TNKids office at (615)973-4323.
