The Summer Food Service Program for Children was created to serve nutritious meals to children when the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program meals are not available. Under this program, free meals are provided to all eligible children ages 1 to 18 as well as people with disabilities, regardless of age, who participate in a special education program. 

Acceptance and participation requirements for the program are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
