Summer Food Service Program Media Release

The Summer Food Service Program provides an opportunity to offer nutritious meals at no cost to families during the summer when kids and teens no longer have access to school meals. The SFSP supports students’ health, well-being and academic success. According to the 2022 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report, 37% of households with children were not eating enough food because food was unaffordable and the U.S. Department of Agriculture waivers that expanded access to summer meals have expired. This summer, it’s more important than ever to invest in Colorado’s youth by ensuring access to nutritious, no-cost meals across the state. To help ensure summer meals are available in your community, become a program sponsor or continue sponsorship past this school year.

View the statewide media release that highlights the continued partnership of CDE, Hunger Free Colorado, and the Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger, who are working together to expand access to the Summer Meals Program across Colorado.
